Product Description

Review

"Prolific fiber crafts author Hubert (Plus Size Crochet) presents a wide variety of crocheted lace motifs in this collection, which consists of a stitch dictionary, projects, and a guide to the specialized techniques of Bruges lace and Irish and freeform crochet. The projects focus on garments and accessories and include the standard shawls, shells, and hats often found in crochet books. All of the patterns feature both written and charted directions, and a guide to crochet chart symbols is also provided. Basic knowledge of crochet techniques and stitches is assumed.
Verdict The stitch dictionary isn’t comprehensive, but crocheters who are interested in exploring lacework or designing their own lacework patterns will appreciate the focus, and the sections on Irish crochet and Bruges lace may introduce these techniques to a wider audience." - Library Journal

4.0 out of 5 stars try lace crochet 30 July 2013
By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Spiral-bound
You have mastered the basics of crochet, it's time to go beyond the basic. Aim high, crochet in lace patterns that can be stunning and used in unique ways. This book contains patterns, edgings and trims and fully explores lace crochet. You'll find twenty projects included and all the techniques you need fully explained. I like Bullions and Lace, Peek-A-Boo Picots and my favourite is Solomon's Knot. There is one square pattern too and I really like Devon Cross Square. The trims and edgings include some great patterns and I loved Side Shells, Sabrina's Lace, Princess Picot, Irish Roses in a Row and Catherine's Wheel. You'll get the best out of the book when you combine stitch patterns to create unique garments. The Ruffled Circle Sweater is great (it's actually a cardigan), the Devon Cross Shawl is elegant and I loved the boutique hangers - dressing up wooden clothes hangers with lacy crochet. However, I didn't find the projects that enthralling.

Irish crochet and freeform crochet techniques and motifs are also included. So go to town with all this book provides and be willing to use it to create something different. I like the fancy shamrock and the Not-so-Victorian Collar is a great project in this section. In the Freeform section there are three tops to make - I didn't think they were very freeform - just the collar. Learn how to make Bruges Lace too, the technique and a stunning top. These last three sections are brief. This is a great book for crocheters wanting to take a leap to the next level. It's worth it. Clear instructions and photographs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I expected 20 Feb 2014
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Considering the title and description of this book, I was expecting something a little more in-depth than I found within this book. I had hoped that it would delve deeply into each of the crochet lace techniques, but in stead it offered only a few basic guides to crochet lace. If you are an intermediate crocheter looking to expand your skill set, I would certainly recommend this book. However, if, like me, you are an advanced crochet looking for something more advanced in the way of crochet lace techniques, I suggest you skip this and carry on looking. Don't get me wrong, I still got a lot out of the book with its pattern swatches and projects; it just wasn't quite what I was looking for.
