5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the series 10 Sept. 2013
By Blu
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The 'One-Skein' series of books is excellent (and highly recommended), and this is a worthy addition to it.

Firstly, the 101 patterns aren't all knitted in laceweight yarn, so if you're uncomfortable with superfine kid mohair and the like you don't have to worry - there are many patterns in fingering/4-ply and even worsted/DK. It's not all threadweight doilies! Whilst the patterns use a good spread of brand name yarns, substitutions are easy enough as the yarn fibre content and yards/metres per ball are clearly stated (if you're unsure, the Ravelry website has an excellent yarn database that lists yarn thicknesses of almost all yarns in production. Don't feel bad about using a cheap acrylic baby 4-ply if it's all you can lay your hands on, it'll still look beautiful!).

There's something here for all knitters, from beginners to experienced. The lace runs from simple mesh to complex double-sided patterning with beads, and everything in between. More complex lace patterns are charted rather than written out, which might be something to bear in mind if you're unused to charts. Some patterns are all lace, some solid with lacey touches, so items should be suitable for all types of wear.

The patterns are as follows:

Hats (12 patterns)
Mitts, gloves and cuffs (9 patterns)
Socks (7 patterns)
Baby & toddler wear (11 patterns)
Blankets & doll clothes (4 patterns)
Scarves (19 patterns)
Cowls (9 patterns)
Shawls & stoles (15 patterns)
Accessories (8 patterns)
For the home (7 patterns)

There's also a glossary with details about abbreviations, all the knitting skills you'll meet in the book, and the designers of the patterns too.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 20 Oct. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book with lovely patterns. Usually there are a few patterns you like in a book but this one they are all lovely.
I have already knitted 2 items from this book & they turned out exactly as expected. The patterns are easy to follow & well written.
If you like lace patterns that can be used for everyday life this is the book for you.

By Sarah VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a beautiful little book filled with lacy patterns (not all meant for lace weight yarn, so don't panic about finger cramp!) that are a joy to knit. My favourite thing about this book is that each project is meant to only use one ball/skein of yarn. Now i have to admit i haven't made every single pattern in the book, and obviously you have to take your own tension into consideration but i think this is a lovely way to use up those oddments of yarn hanging around in the bottom of the yarn basket. I would say every knitter needs a book like this if only to look at the beautiful images for ideas.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just love these judith durant books. I have them all and they are a real 'go to' book when you want to knit somethin small to use up 'YOUR STASH'. I recommend any of these books highly. I now have Designer One Skein, Luxury one skein, Lace one skein, and Sock yarn one skein.
