Amazing Crochet Lace
New Fashions Inspired by Old-fashioned LaceBook - 2006
From the runways of Paris to the sidewalks of small towns, crochet has emerged as a cool and sophisticated fashion trend. Nothing is cooler than doing it yourself - quickly and easily. Inspired by vintage patterns, Doris Chan presents twenty fresh, fantastic designs for beginner and advanced crocheters alike. Chan s designs brilliantly translate old-fashioned lace patterns into fun, funky attire by substituting bright, chunky yarns for delicate fibres and increasing gauge and hook sizes. The result is a lovely, intricate lace pattern that only looks like it was difficult to produce. Because almost all the patterns are designed to be crocheted from the top down seamlessly, there is little to no finishing, piecing or sewing required. If you ve never tried to crochet before, Amazing Crochet Lace is a wonderful introduction to the charm and beauty of lace. If you re a pro, you ll be thrilled with the lovely, fresh designs you can create with the skills you already possess.
