Fashion has rediscovered the charm of a touch of lace. The durability and serviceability of the form of handmade lace known as Irish crochet makes this time-honored craft especially appealing to today's needleworkers. Here is an excellent turn-of-the-century introduction to Irish crochet, available in this attractive and inexpensive paperback edition.
Irish Crochet is a lucid, well-planned guide for crocheters of all levels of skill and experience. Newcomers to Irish crochet will find helpful suggestions on materials, detailed instructions for making even the simplest designs, and a thorough grounding in the special techniques characteristic of Irish crochet. Also included are clear explanations for the basic crochet stitches so that even a newcomer to crochet may begin in the Irish way.
