Learn how to master three classic Shetland lace motifs—just six simple stitches—and build your skills with 20 beautiful and varied projects, too!
Explore traditional Shetland lace knitting with expert teacher Brooke Nico! She shows how just three simple motifs—Feather and Fan and Old Shale; Acre and Razor; and Horseshoe and Leaf—can yield a variety of lovely items, from fashion, to accessories, to home décor. Step-by-step photos and easy-to-follow instructions help even beginners grasp each stitch, and the projects grow progressively more difficult as knitters become more comfortable with the techniques.
