Book - Lace and Eyelet Stitches
I recently collected this book, Lace and Eyelet Stitches by Erika Knight, from the library. Its been on order so long I'm not entirely sure why I ordered it. Probably to make samples for this, or maybe to check out if it was a worthy reference book.
Anyway, a quick glance through revealed some lovely patterns including:-
cable and lace check (pg 51)
crowns (pg 56)
meandering cables with eyelets (pg 66)
snow shoe pattern (pg 154)
wave stitch (pg119)
Of course I did have the insane idea of doing a knitting sampler back in January...
Oh! and whilst looking for some photos to show these lace and eyelet samples I came across the errata document for the book.... Its not something I do automatically when I have pattern book, but its probably good practice to check on the publishers sites for errors...
