Simple Sophisticated Knitted Garments
Full of simple garments and accessories for everyday life, this book will become your new favorite! In this collection of 18 garments and accessories, using lace motifs for edging is only the beginning. Author Heather Zoppetti shows how lace can be easily incorporated into feminine garments meant for daily wear: as a simple panel insert, as edgings and bands, and in an increasingly all-over manner. Simple shaping and construction are the rule here, letting lace take center stage.
Hidden among the collection of lovely garments is a thorough introduction to the basics of lace knitting, including various cast-ons and bind-offs appropriate for lace knitting. Throughout the book, Heather offers tips designed to help the novice knitter.
You'll love this book if:
- You are looking for an easy introduction to basic lace techniques—cast-ons, bind-offs, basic chart reading, and blocking
- You want projects that range from simple accessories to shaped garments, with lace used as an easy accent or more challenging all-over pattern
- You are looking for something more than just knitted lace shawls—this book is packed full of pretty, non-fussy garments meant to be worn every day
