Lacestar Review


I'm excited to share with you a new ebook that has been recently published by knotions magazine titled Lacestar written by Elizabeth Felgate. This ebook is filled with useful information regarding lace knitting which is perfect for beginning or early intermediate knitters who are dipping their toes (or knitting needles) into lace knitting and want to understand some theory as to what is happening when you manipulate the stitches to create lace.

Lacestar covers many topics including:  placing a lifeline, making yarn overs, increasing and decreasing, the best cast ons and bind offs and making nupps as well as many other topics.  I found the section about fixing mistakes quite useful.

Throughout the Lacestar ebook, there are links to tutorials as well as to additional resources to broaden your library.  Each section is supported with a written explanation about along with many photographs to understand the topics covered.

There are nine exercises that progress the knitter through beginning lace and ending with a lace bookmark.  Each lesson builds on the skills obtained from the previous lesson to create a seamless progression of understanding lace knitting.

This ebook is a workbook to create a solid understanding of lace knitting that will help you in all of your future lace knitting projects.



On Ravelry, you can purchase a copy of Lacestar (ebook).

You can also purchase a copy on gumroad (I receive a tiny commission from this site when you purchase this ebook).  Please keep in mind that your gumroad purchase will not sync with your Ravelry account.

  1. Looks like a great book. Glad you are on the mend and that your flare up is settling. Sadly, Gerard is going through a change of medication so is having a major flare up that is making him quite poorly. We are seeing his consultant again on Tuesday and are hopeful of trying some new drugs. Take care.
