5.0 out of 5 stars Again a very well-written book, 16 Dec. 2001
This review is from: Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting (Paperback)
Like Mrs. Kinzel's 'First Book of Modern Lace Knitting' a must-have. The patterns may at first appear out of date, but they represent some of the classics within lace knitting, e.g. English Rose. No seriuos lace knitter should be without it.
A collection of patterns, some of which appeared earlier as leaflets. Each with a picture of the project, clear instructions by the author, explicite pattern charts and suggestions for variations the knitter might want to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite knitted lace!, 1 July 2005
This review is from: Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting (Paperback)
This book is a continuation of "First Book of Modern Lace Knitting" and if anything the designs are even more exquisite than they were in the first book. Neither is for the beginner but any lace knitter will enjoy the book which has the most wonderful all lace tablecloths and household linen.
The book is a joy to look at and read and the instructions are clear and well presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars all perfectly put together, 29 Jan. 2009

The Second Book of Lace Knitting by Marianne Kinzel

I owned this book and its earlier companion in the first editions. I have knitted several of the patterns up as tablecloths and also as Christening Shawls. At least two of these are now family heirlooms - they were knitted in the mid-seventies- and are now running into the third generation. They are still considered exquisite in design.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book with a lot of extremely useful information., 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting (Paperback)
I bought the book because me niece asked me to knit a table cloth for the table her wedding cake will be displayed on, and it was recommended in one of the patterns I downloaded from Ravelry.com. Having looked through the book, there are some things that I would like to try, such as the crochet cast on, it is definitely worth having in my collection even if I only every use it for information. A very good book with a lot of very useful information, but not recommended for a beginner. From order to receipt was quicker than anticipated.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book of patterns, 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting (Paperback)
I am very pleased with this book. The only problem that I have is trying to relate the quantities of yarn required as the book only refers to balls of thread and not the size of the ball. I have tried in several shops to equate modern yarns with those in the book with no success so far. If I do knit any of the patterns it will be a little bit hit and miss. I will still have a go during the long winter evenings.
