About The Book
Mohair-silk yarn, renowned for its delicate beauty, has a rapidly growing fanbase around the world. Knitting with it, say devotees, is “highly addictive,” partly because its unique elements — the sheen of the silk structure and the haze of the mohair — effortlessly combine to bestow a touch of glamour upon every knitting pattern. Simplicity is the key when working with such yarn, as even the most basic of designs is given an air of complexity by the luster and texture of the mohair-silk. It is with this in mind that Alison Crowther-Smith, author of the popular book Silky Little Knits, explores new ways of using embellishments and shade work to show this superfine yarn to its best advantage — this time in a sparkling collection of over 20 lace accessories for you and your home.
You’ll find step-by-step instructions for both traditional and modern lace patterns — something to suit every knitting palate: from simple lace ribbing, to bold circular lace designs; from lace with beads, sequins, and embroidery, to ideas for fabric backing and color-blending. One-of-a-kind projects include delicate scarves, cozy mittens, shimmering shrugs, glittering bags, and pillows with lattice and floral motifs. Designs vary from easy to more difficult, but all are extremely accessible, regardless of your level of expertise, and were chosen to be quick-to-knit with modern, busy lifestyles in mind. With a special introduction to the ins-and-outs of working with mohair (including the tricks to casting on, matching gauge and tension, finishing, and binding off) and full color photos and illustrations, beginning knitters will have just as much fun creating these projects as the more advanced crafters who may have worked with lace and mohair-silk before. Most importantly, Crowther-Smith’s patterns yield the most rewarding results you can imagine: knitwear brimming with delicacy, style, and timeless charm.
