|内容：||Introduction Projects Just Right Wrap- Sometimes two yarns are better than one, especially when they're two weights of the same luscious alpaca as Mari Lynn Patrick demonstrates in this wear-everywhere wrap jacket. The Point About Cuffs- For centuries, a white lace louse has been a wardrobe staple, but when that blouse is covered with a jacket, all that shows are the cuffs. With this notion in mind, Vicki Square designed a pair of mohair cuffs that can be worn with any garment. Lily of the Valley Shawl- Some of the most beautiful lace patterns come from Eastern Europe. The lily of the valley pattern Nancy Bush used in this shawl is a traditional but enduringly popular motif that originated in Estonia. Floral Lace Anklets- Evelyn A. Clark nearly always has a pair of socks on her needles. In this pair, she worked a small scalloped lace border that evolves into columns of little lace flowers. Lace-Edged Corset- Michele Rose Orne is an expert in designing sophisticated feminine knitwear. In this delicate corset top, she chose a silk yarn for the body and a very fine, crisp cotton yarn for the delicate lace edging at the neck and hem. Featherlight Lingerie Dress- We're all familiar with gossamer shawls, but Mari Lynn Patrick went a step further and created a featherweight dress with handkerchief hem. Little Silk Shrug- A lace garment doesn't get much simpler than this little shrug. The lace motif has a four-row repeat-and two of those four rows are simple purl rows-that is easily memorized. The Essential Tank Top- A large-scale lace motif worked in fine yarn on large needles creates an appealing airy fabric in Laura Zukaite's lace tank. Tailored Scallops- A longtime fan of the traditional feather and fan stitch pattern, Pam Allen worked it on a grand scale for this classic jacket. Ooh La Lace Dress and Stole- In this elegant dress and stole ensemble, Shirley Paden proves that sometimes you can't have too much of a good thing. Retro Redux Shrug- A wardrobe mainstay of the 1940s and 1950s, shrugs helped ensure warmth when sleek, backless dresses were all the rage. Katharine Hepburn Cardigan- Lace and cables. Cables and lace. However you pair the two, you're bound to come up with a winning combination. Long Long Lacy Gloves- Simultaneously elegant and whimsical, Lois S. Young's over-the-elbow fingerless gloves accessorize any sleeveless top or dress. Peek-a-Boo Cloche- For the most part, lace patterns do not make insulating fabric and are rarely considered appropriate for warm winter hats. But by layering a decorative lace pattern over dense stockinette stitch, Mona Schmidt found a way to make this hat both lacy and warm. Show-Off Ruffle Skirt- For this knitted skirt, Kat Coyle worked the bobble lace ruffle back and forth in rows. She then joined the ruffle in to a circle and worked slimming twisted-rib pattern in the round to the waist. Leg Cozies- Openwork zigs and zags give a ribbed appearance to Lisa Daehlin's casually dressy leg warmers. Ribbed edgings at top and bottom border a pattern that alternates fagot lace with panels of wavy stockinette stitch. Lacy Waves Top- In this striking sweater Norah Gaughan carved out a broad notch at the front neckline and filled it with an asymmetrical lace motif that forms scalloping ripples at the neck. Greta Garbo Garden Hat- For those days when a wide-brimmed hat is still in order, Annie Modesitt has designed a knitted version of this elegant staple. Never Wimpy Wimple Priscilla- Whether you wear it up over your head or down around your neck, a wimple, especially one that's edged in lace, makes a delicate frame for your face. Sterling and Crystal Cuff- Annie Modesitt has used fine silver wire to knit this classy little bracelet on large needles that exaggerate the open stitches of a simple pattern. Shetland Shawl Turned Vest- Veronik Avery took inspiration from the classic Shetland shawl for this little charcoal vest. She combined two lace patterns: one typically used to create the shawl's outer edge for the lower part of her vest, and one typically used in the shawl's interior area for the bodice.|
