Following the success of Scarf Style and Wrap Style - with more than 100,000 copies sold - Lace Style contains a stunning collection of quick knits that take a modern twist on a traditional pattern. Revel in ways to use lace as allover patterns, trims and edgings, and inserts. Innovative designs include a lace pattern typically used for baby wear boldly translated into a striking woman's scalloped jacket, a delicate lace edging used to accent a featherlight lingerie dress, a chic skirt made lacy with intentionally dropped stitches, a wide-brim garden hat with a decidedly vintage feel, a sophisticated bracelet knitted from fine silver wire, and much more. Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions and lavish lifestyle photographs with plenty of detail shots. A special design chapter demystifies the elements of knitted lace, and details several ways to achieve lacy effects. Whether you're an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or a beginner trying lace knitting for the first time, Lace Style has everything you need to knit lace with confidence.

Introduction Projects Just Right Wrap- Sometimes two yarns are better than one, especially when they're two weights of the same luscious alpaca as Mari Lynn Patrick demonstrates in this wear-everywhere wrap jacket. The Point About Cuffs- For centuries, a white lace louse has been a wardrobe staple, but when that blouse is covered with a jacket, all that shows are the cuffs. With this notion in mind, Vicki Square designed a pair of mohair cuffs that can be worn with any garment. Lily of the Valley Shawl- Some of the most beautiful lace patterns come from Eastern Europe. The lily of the valley pattern Nancy Bush used in this shawl is a traditional but enduringly popular motif that originated in Estonia. Floral Lace Anklets- Evelyn A. Clark nearly always has a pair of socks on her needles. In this pair, she worked a small scalloped lace border that evolves into columns of little lace flowers. Lace-Edged Corset- Michele Rose Orne is an expert in designing sophisticated feminine knitwear.

Featherlight Lingerie Dress- We're all familiar with gossamer shawls, but Mari Lynn Patrick went a step further and created a featherweight dress with handkerchief hem. Little Silk Shrug- A lace garment doesn't get much simpler than this little shrug. The lace motif has a four-row repeat-and two of those four rows are simple purl rows-that is easily memorized.

Retro Redux Shrug- A wardrobe mainstay of the 1940s and 1950s, shrugs helped ensure warmth when sleek, backless dresses were all the rage. Katharine Hepburn Cardigan- Lace and cables. Cables and lace. However you pair the two, you're bound to come up with a winning combination. Long Long Lacy Gloves- Simultaneously elegant and whimsical, Lois S. Young's over-the-elbow fingerless gloves accessorize any sleeveless top or dress. Peek-a-Boo Cloche- For the most part, lace patterns do not make insulating fabric and are rarely considered appropriate for warm winter hats. But by layering a decorative lace pattern over dense stockinette stitch, Mona Schmidt found a way to make this hat both lacy and warm. Show-Off Ruffle Skirt- For this knitted skirt, Kat Coyle worked the bobble lace ruffle back and forth in rows. She then joined the ruffle in to a circle and worked s
