From runways to department stores, lace is everywhere and knitters are picking up their needles to chase the trend. Lace Style takes a fresh approach to this classic theme by combining solid techniques with 20+ contemporary projects. Following the success of Scarf Style and Wrap Style - with more than 100,000 copies sold - we've selected a stunning collection of quick knits that take a modern twist on a traditional pattern. Accomplished designers including Veronik Avery, Norah Gaughan, Annie Modesitt, Shirley Paden and Michele Rose Orne will inspire with patterns ranging from scarves, shawls, hats, sweaters, dresses, and more. Revel in ways to use lace as allover patterns, trims and edgings, and inserts. Innovative designs include a lace pattern typically used for baby wear boldly translated into a striking woman's scalloped jacket, a delicate lace edging used to accent a featherlight lingerie dress, a chic skirt made lacy with intentionally dropped stitches, a wide-brim garden hat with a decidedly vintage feel, a sophisticated bracelet knitted from fine silver wire, and much more. Each pattern has detailed step-by-step instructions and lavish lifestyle photographs with plenty of detail shots to keep readers inspired. A special design chapter demystifies the elements of knitted lace, and details several ways to achieve lacy effects. It also provides key pointers on how to incorporate lace motifs into other patterns and tips to ensure success. Whether you're an experienced knitter looking for inspiration or a beginner trying lace knitting for the first time, Lace Style has everything you need to knit lace with confidence.

I just love it. This is a wonderful book." - "Knitting News""Beautiful, wearable garments from several popular designers. I was delighted with the wide variety of garments and expertise levels presented." - All Info About"This is one of the most accessible lace knitting books on the market and well worth bookshelf space." - Monsters and"Lace knitting might conjure up images of old-fashioned shawls and bed spreads, but this new book shows how this addictive knitting technique can look fresh, exciting and fashionable." - "Knit Today" magazine (UK)"The innovative and contemporary designs in this book are absolutely amazing!" - KLIATT

About Pam Allen

Ann Budd first learned to knit in 1968 when living in Switzerland for a year with her family. At the time, knitting was part of the curriculum for all schoolgirls. Back in the United States, Ann continued to knit through her high-school, college, and graduate years, when she earned a master's degree in Geology. In 1989, Ann decided to forego the sciences and pursue her passion for knitting and fiber-related crafts when she began working as an editorial assistant for Handwoven magazine. Through the years, Ann worked as a book editor and managing editor of Interweave Knits magazine. Since 2002, Ann has authored or co-authored more than eight books, including the popular Knitter's Handy Book series, Getting Started Knitting Socks, and several books in the Style series. Ann continues to edit craft books for Interweave as well as author her own books. Pam Allen has been part of the hand-knitting industry since 1985, and joined Classic Elite Yarns in May 2007. Until 2003, when she was hired as editor of Interweave Knits, her designs were published regularly in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, and Knitters. Her work was also featured in general interest magazines-Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, and Woman's Day-and in Melanie Falick's book Knitting in America (1996) and Vogue Knitting/American Collection (2000). She is the author of Knitting for Dummies and Scarf Style, and the co-author of 4 other titles in the Style series published by Interweave Press. As editor of Interweave Knits, Pam worked with established hand-knitwear designers such as Norah Gaughan, Mari Lynn Patrick, and Deborah Newton, and she also encouraged new-generation designers such as Veronik Avery and Kate Gilbert. As creative director at CEY, Pam continues to work with these and other talented and well-known hand-knitwear designers, including up-and-coming blogger and designer Jared Flood. She also continues to be published not only in CEY's semi-annual collection of best selling pattern booklets, but also in major knitting magazines, and e-zines, such as Twist Collective and
