Loop-d-Loop Lace: More than 30 Novel Lace Designs for Knitters by The Agency Group

Loop-d-Loop Lace: More than 30 Novel Lace Designs for Knitters


Loop-d-Loop Lace: More than 30 Novel Lace Designs for Knitters by The Agency Group

This groundbreaking volume in the Loop-d-Loop series shatters the idea that lace is old-fashioned by presenting more than 30 cutting-edge knitted lace projects that are as up to the minute style-wise as they are thoroughly steeped in lace tradition. Ranging from pullovers, skirts, and shawls to items for the home, each of the projects in Loop-d-Loop Lace epitomizes Teva Durham's signature design sensibility, which she describes as a tension of opposites - rough-hewn yet delicate, stark yet feminine, organic yet structured.A Some of the designs stay true to the traditional sensibilities of lace knitting by way of lightweight yarns, revered stitch patterns, and classic garment types like camisoles and shawls. But Durham also plays with the genre, utilizing splashes of bright and saturated colors as well as chunky yarns that showcase lace on a macro level. Projects (for women, children, and the home) range from easy to advanced and will appeal to new and established lace knitters. Color photographs by Adrian Buckmaster show off the finished garments with the series' signature modern, romantic appeal. For those who wish to experiment with lace knitting, Durham provides a comprehensive lesson on how to adapt and customize lace patterns and how to swap out one for another in projects.
