Hott Review of Crochet Lace: I KNOW this is a bit out of the norm for me unless you’ve met the fam. You see, my mother-in-law comes from a Mennonite family whose women still carry around handkerchief edged with crocheted lace. For years I’ve been trying to get the patters right and to find the proper tools and process to get these right. This book is a lifesaver! In addition to finally being able to contribute to the dwindling crocheters in the family I have the tools and background to make this process easier and more enjoyable! Crochet Lace not only gives you the patters it explains the background and gives a much clearer explanation on the abbreviations and techniques needed to create this fashion necessity.

Title: Crochet Lace Author: Pauline Turner Publisher: Pavilion Books Published: 4/29/2014 ISBN: 9781849941853 ASIN E-Book: B00K0QIGWS Pages: 217 Genre: Crafts & Hobbies Tags: DIY, Crochet Overall Rating: Very Good Reviewed For: NetGalley Reviewer: DelAnne Crochet Lace is a very useful book, both those that have used fine thread to make lacy designs before and those who have never worked with threads as opposed to yarns before. There is a brief history on crochet lace and pictures showing the early very complicated patterns. Pauline Turner, bless her heart has explained the different stitches, threads and types of hooks that might be used. The patterns she has offered are quite delicate looking without being difficult to follow. Allowing you to recreate some very beautiful piece. They can be time consuming, but are well worth the effort. There is the filet crochet pattern that dates back to WWI or the Swan Wall Hanging that makes a wonderful valance. There's the diamond patterned shrug. As well as motifs that can be connected similar to granny squares to create everything from placemats to doilies to tablecloths or even bedspreads.
