This book was inspired by Victorian lace knttting in England. Jane Sowerby has researched many old designs and brought them up to date.
The patterns are for sarves, shawls, capelets, wraps and veils. Some are easy and suitable for new lace knitters and others are very complex and will need full on concentration.
As well as the actual patterns, there is information about the original patterns, instructions on how to knit lace, how to block and how to design your own shawl.
Yarns are suggested together with alternatives.
Unfortunately this is a big heavy book and so shipping is quite high but it is worth it!
The book is hardback and printed in full colour throughout.
