A fresh, modern take on classic lace knitting!
When it comes to stunning lace knitting, there are few names more synonymous with the craft than Romi Hill. Her designs have made by thousands of knitters and her latest creations in New Lace Knitting will have you racing for your needles and skeins of yarn to cast on beautiful, artful, sophisticated pieces.
These 19 garment and accessory designs will reawaken your love of traditional lace knitting by using classic stitch patterns in fresh ways--whether you're creating shawls, cardigans, pullovers, or wraps. Through these pieces, you'll be treated to the incredible versatility of lace: how stitch patterns change in different weights of yarn, how you can use that stitch pattern sparingly or for your whole project, and how little knitterly details make a lace project truly elegant, whether it is for every day or special occasion.
You may be familiar with knitting lace, but this is New Lace Knitting!

"New Lace Knitting is a beautiful collection of garments and accessories presented in a unique way. Each chapter focuses on a classic lace stitch or motif.

"Romi Hill is one of my favorite designers, especially for lace. She has a way of making yarn disappear into a cohesive sheet of etched beauty." --Clara Parkes, Knitter's Review
"Her designs are beautiful; the lace is integrated, matched perfectly to each piece and looks effortless... All of her lace is beautiful, but never too precious or hard to knit that you wouldn't wear it. Her patterns are so well planned and executed that they are a joy to knit." --knitty.com
"Romi has created beautiful projects, each of which looks carefully at the lace stitch used, the yarn, the color, the drape of the fabric and of course, the fit of the finished garment. Romi gets these elements right every time." --Nancy Marchant

"...she has a way of knitting lace that makes you wonder, how does she do that?" --Tanis Knits
"Lace is perfect this time of year because ... instant ventilation! We love, love, love the Williwaw cardigan with its asymmetric closure ... and the Manzanita tee, with its lace yoke and picot hem, which can go from the mountains to the Met, depending on how you style it. There are nineteen patterns here-garments, shawls, scarves, hats-all making us ache to doff our fishermen's knits in favor of those that let the sun shine in." --Vogue Knitting
