One of the best books on lace knitting that I have seen

But I don't think this is the best book for beginners (for that I would recommend the 'book on CD', 'Knitting Shetland Lace' by Elizabeth Lovick)

Otherwise I agree with all that is said above. 'Lace style'gives 12 books in the Bibliography and I have 10 of them plus some not mentioned - the 2 I don't have are from Barbara Walker and are out of print and expensive. But this one and Susan Lewiss's Workbook would be competing for my one lace book on a desert island.

In particular, she provides concise and clear instructions and explanations for basic procedures and 'The interplay of yarnovers and decreases'

Additionally, several techniques used in the patterns are useful and interesting and the use of a couple of complementary stitches in a design is stimulating

Buy it if you have some experience and want to learn more or if you are a beginner, buy it and leave the patterns till later but use the technique sections to speed your learning.

Happy lace knitting
