Haapsalu Shawl

A Knitted Lace Tradition from Estonia
A glorious, coffee-table size book of knitted lace, Estonia and a binding love between the two. Not a simple pattern book, and certainly not a project book, but a time capsule into a far off world where the soul of a people is captured in the hands that guide the needles to create the indigenous patterns of a rich heritage. The photography capturing this world is rich and the drawings and charts make the techniques and patterns close to a hands-on learning experience.  hardcover, 182 pages

        Comments about Haapsalu Shawl:

        I have been looking for an affordable version of this book for a while. It is in English, and the symbols are clearly explained.

        Now I can design my own Haapsalu shawl.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always, delivery was prompt and the product arrived in good condition.

                  This is a beautiful book with gorgeous shawl patterns. I can't wait to try them.
                  Since this book is a collection of patterns and does not have complete projects, I also purchased 'Knitted Lace of Estonia with DVD' just to get me started with some ideas.

                  big beautiful haapsalu lace pattern collection

                  By Anonymous

                  from Somerset, NJ

                  Comments about Haapsalu Shawl:

                  This is a collection of Haapsalu lace patterns. Symbols are a bit different than I am used to, but book contains a nice index of the symbols to refer to if needed. Charts are a nice size and easy to follow. The collection is extensive and so far accurate. The patterns are organized into lots of variations on several themes. The book has large pages, but isn't too heavy, with beautiful project photographs but no project instructions. The book explains the techniques thoroughly, so any competent knitter can design their own projects using the beautiful patterns presented in the photographs and charts.

                  The book and patterns are really beautiful also the clear instructions. The patterns didn't use the similar signs as others but it didn't problems.
