Knitting Books: Lace Style

 
5.0 out of 5 stars

Modern Lace

I received this book a few months ago and it wasn’t until last week that I tried one of the patterns. It was the Lace Trim cami, shown on the back cover. This was not a simple pattern, made with #3 crochet thread and size 3 needles. It had multiple steps and took some time. Once the bodice was made and assembled, lots of finishing touches had to be knitted.
The photos and instructions for this delicate garment were very clear and thorough, easy to follow one step at a time. The cami is fully fashioned with lots of shaping, even darts! It’s finally completed, and mine actually looks like the one pictured, very professional. (That doesn’t always happen, sad to say).
Lace Style is now part of my permanent knitting library, and while I haven’t chosen a second pattern, I look forward to trying more.
