By Rosemary (Romi) Hill
Join the thousands of knitters creating knitwear by renowned designer Romi Hill in the pages of her first knitting book with Interweave, New Lace Knitting. Romi’s unique approach to lace knitting is sure to have you racing for your needles and skeins of yarn to cast on beautiful, artful, sophisticated pieces.
New Lace Knitting is a striking collection of 19 garment and accessory designs intended to reawaken your love of traditional lace knitting by using classic stitch patterns in fresh ways. Whether you’re creating shawls, cardigans, pullovers, or wraps, these projects show you the incredible versatility of lace: how stitch patterns change in different weights of yarn, how you can use that stitch pattern sparingly or for your whole project, and how little knitterly details make a lace project truly elegant, whether it is for every day or special occasion.
