Lark Crafts, April 2015
Get your laceweight on: in Carol’s new book, Lace Yarn Studio, you’ll find over 24 patterns that call for lace weight yarn — for things other than traditional floral shawls. Laceweight yarn is light, airy, sheer and elegant, and these carefully-curated patterns give you plenty of ways to use it, even if you aren’t a “shawl person.” A cardigan with airy pleats, swingy layering pieces, fingerless gloves, a pillow cover, a beaded skirt — you’ll love the variety and modern feel of these projects. Contributors include Franklin Habit, Fiona Ellis, Véronik Avery, Brooke Nico and more.
