Knitters who think lace-weight yarn is difficult to work with or only for old-fashioned shawls are in for a big surprise! These 25 patterns—created by Carol J. Sulcoski and a group of talented designers—break beautifully free from the flowery, heirloom mold. The fresh, contemporary ideas range from an asymmetric tank top and beaded skirt to opera-length gloves and airy infinity scarves. And to make the knitting easy, a comprehensive basics section offers tricks for avoiding yarn tangles, tips on knitting with a lifeline, information about choosing fiber content, and much more.
