Amazing Lace is inspiring,
This review is from: Amazing Crochet Lace: New Fashions Inspired by Old-fashioned Lace (Paperback)
I like this book because it gives a fresh twist to traditional lace crochet. I think most reasonably experienced crocheters could easily decide on alternative yarns for the patterns (yes, they are mostly yarns from the US), and Doris Chan does give very detailed instructions.
The patterns work up quickly, and do require a bit of faith to think they will work - but they do. There are so many traditional crochet patterns available for those who want to work with small hooks and thin yarn - its nice to see someone taking this craft to a different level.
