Knitted heirloom designs from around the world.
Wrapped in Lace highlights a significant part of Margaret Stove’s personal knitting journey: working with the legendary ”wedding ring shawl”, a large knitted lace shawl so fine and delicate that it can be drawn through a wedding ring.
Framed by an engaging narrative of learning to create knitted lace from scratch, Wrapped in Lace describes each set of lace techniques, patterns, and traditions in depth, then gives an original pattern for a lace shawl, stole, or scarf.
The twelve original projects are characteristic of knitted lace from the Faroe Islands, Shetlands Islands, Orenburg, Estonia, and lace motifs of New Zealand, as well as more contemporary European work. An expert on lace repair and conservation, Margaret Stove also teaches how to preserve, restore, or even remake knitted lace heirlooms.
