Detta är en engelsktextad bok om spetsstickning från Shetlandsöarna.
A bit of history is followed by construction-drawings of a classic Shetland shawl. There are over 30 stitch patterns with line-by-line instructions. Directions for a most beautiful Christening Dress finishes the book. The shawls traditionally use our Shetland Cobweb or Shetland Laceweight wools.
This book is not the be-all and end-all of lace knitting, but it is a great reference for shetland lace.
There are photos of some old elaborate shetland garments (including lacy socks), a brief history, 36 traditional lace stitch patterns (though some are more involved that it seems like more than 36), and then patterns for 7 lace garments.
