by Kathryn Clark
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars ... is one of many crochet books and ultimately my favourite. I have made the jacket on the front ..., 22 April 2015
This is one of many crochet books and ultimately my favourite. I have made the jacket on the front cover but had to make it larger but turned out fabulous. Half way through the skirt now. Love this book. There are several outfits ideal when you want to wear or crochet something special.

This review is from: Lace Crochet (Hardcover)
Disappointing. Not as informative as i thought it would be. Improvement could be made by the addition of more information and more projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love this book, 22 Feb. 2012
This is a lovely book and an essential for a crochet motif junkie with 75 lovely motifs worked in a range of bright dazzling colours.

Although a yarn and crochet hook size are not stated a range from aran weight to thread yarn with its corresponding hook size could be substituted.
I especially like the layout in that each motif is illustrated in colour along with the same size diagram and also the text explaination, all on one page, making the instructions easy to follow.
There are also 19 projcts to do using some of the motifs as well as basic crochet instructions.

I Love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intricate and Beautiful, 22 Feb. 2012
This is a small 48 page booklet with 8 projects using mostly cotton thread no 10, although different yarns can be substituted. I bought it for the fabulous shawl pattern, a large project, which I hope to do some day. However there are also smaller projects, a necklace, hair combs, a ring bearer pillow, a scarf and 2 doilies. A lovely addition to anyones crochet collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars a treasure, 22 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Crochet Lace (Hardcover)
A beautfully illustrated book with motifs that can be used to make lace clothing or tablecloths if bedspreads are too large a project. Printed on good quality glossy paper.
Thread cotton no 20, 10 and 3 are used in the 23 projects which are accompanied by large diagrams. In hardback format this is a book to be treasured
