THE HERITAGE OF KNITTING SERIES

 
 
Tessa Lorant's Collection of
KNITTED LACE EDGINGS
 

These dainty and enchanting lace edgings are gleaned from some treasured patterns from the past. They have been rewritten and corrected for modern knitters and give an excellent grounding in lace knitting for newcomers to the craft.

Knitted lace can be less than inspiring to look at when it first comes off the needles. It needs to be stretched into shape. The original patterns give no inkling of the clever shaping which has gone into them. The techniques given here show how to dress the finished knitting to make outstanding laces.

 
KNITTED QUILTS & FLOUNCES
 

Quilt making is a popular craft, but knitted quilt patterns are hard to come by. This collection of outstanding traditional knitting patterns revives twenty-four genuine ‘white knitting’ designs. Ways of assembling and dressing the pieces are discussed, and the carefully re-knitted patterns are fully illustrated.


  
 
KNITTED LACE COLLARS
 
    Antique laces, particularly antique lace collars, are always an exciting fashion accessory. These specially designed knitted collars are based on some of the most magnificent traditional lace patterns, but subtly overcome the difficulty of using some knitted laces symmetrically. These collars can hold their own against all kinds of antique or modern lace.

 


KNITTED SHAWLS AND WRAPS
 

Knitted veils, clouds, capes, fichus, nightingales and many other types of Victorian-style knitted ‘shawls’ are here to give you the pick of knitted wraps. They include a wealth of traditional shawl stitch patterns such as ‘Boule de Neige’, ‘Cherry Leaf’, ‘Tansy’ and ‘Coral’. These are combined with updated designs and cater for both the novice and experienced knitter, giving them the opportunity to make knitted ‘fur’ or to enhance a wedding outfit with a ‘cobweb’ veil.

THE SECRETS OF SUCCESSFUL IRISH CROCHET LACE
 
Anyone who can knit can learn to crochet. And anyone who can work double crochets and make simple crochet chains can make ‘Baby’ Irish Crochet Lace. Add treble crochet stitches to your repertoire, and the Clones Knot for special effects, and you’re equipped to make the finest laces your imaginative talents can create.

This book shows methods for adapting modern materials and modern techniques to overcome the more laborious aspects of making and finishing Irish Crochet Laces.

 
KNITTED LACE DOILIES
 

Knitted doily patterns are few and far between. This book includes a number of beautiful traditional designs as well as some more modern ones, together with new advances in knitting techniques. And, for those knitters who are inexperienced in circular knitting, several of the doily patterns are knitted on two needles.
