Shawls and Scarves begins with a historical perspective and encompasses methods for traditional Shetland and Faroese favorites as well as contemporary departures. Contributors include a "who's who" of lace knitwear designers, among them Elizabeth Zimmermann, Meg Swansen, Deborah Newton, and Eugen Beugler.
Most, but not all, of the 29 patterns involve lace and include both charted and written directions. Tips, techniques, and design approaches add context. Generic yarn recommendations help keep this collection current.
