A Gathering of Lace

A Gathering of Lace presents the many faces of lace knitting. 34 lace knitters—from Eugen Beugler to Elizabeth Zimmermann— share their secrets and their favorite projects. From Shetland shawls to beaded shrugs, from lace gloves to great garments, from A Beginner’s Triangle to Ingrid’s Bridal Knot Shawl—Meg Swansen’s gathering takes a fresh look at lace of all styles. Beginning with Simplicity, through Traditional, Points of Departure, Garments, and Little Laces, the 42 projects are arranged by designer. The Gallery includes intriguing additions, and the knitters introduce themselves in Biographies.


Today “lace” doesn’t just mean doilies knit in very fine yarn; often the yarns are not fine and the needles large for faster knitting and greater impact. A Gathering of Lace samples the best in traditional and contemporary lace knitting— sweaters, vests, shawls, gloves, and socks—some are simple enough for the new knitter while others will stimulate seasoned lacers.


The owner of Schoolhouse Press, Meg Swansen is a knitting designer, teacher, writer, and the daughter of Elizabeth Zimmermann.
