Russian Inspired Lace Shawl Design: Design and knit your own shawl using Russian Shawl Construction Techniques and Lace Shorthand on DVD with an accompanying resource CD.
Sandy Terp begins by reviewing eyelet patterns and their placement through demonstration on several vintage and modern shawls and samplers from her collection.
Then she explains how to chart your patterns and make a sampler to develop your gauge and determine the size thread and needle you will want to use.
Pattern mapping techniques are covered in detail with several examples of original shawls and how the designer translated their inspiration to a knit-able pattern.
All covered stitches are explicitly shown from the point of view of the knitter, using high contrast threads.
Sandy takes you through the design and pattern mapping process on her project shawl, "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend".
Finally Sandy and her helper show you ways to display and wear your knitted lace shawls.
Resource CD Includes: sampler & project charts, sampler & project instructions, pictures of the sampler & project, pictures of shawls that use these techniques.
