This is another one of my favorite knitting books. The author starts with a little history about shawls, some tips on designing, and then there are the patterns. She covers lace, Shetland, Faroese, circular, triangular, rectangular, as well as other topics and ideas and a pattern for a scarf, hat, and mittens. The book is full of diagrams and beautiful, big, colorful pictures of the finished apparel.
I absolutely love this book! Eugen Beugler's "Lace Dream" Stole was worth buying the entire book alone. I have borrowed a few of the lace patterns to use in designing some of my own shawls, scarves, etc. This is also where I first heard of author, Myrna Stahman, whom I have met on line and consider a good friend. This book is a valuable resource to me. I highly recommend it.
This book has beautiful lace work shawls and other types of shawls. I would love to try and make them, but it would use an abbreviation like SK2P and say see page 100. I went there, and it wasn't there. So not sure what I am supposed to do. Returning the book and will look at it some other time.
