Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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
