Synopsis

Recognized for unique compositions of unusual beauty, Irish crochet has been used for generations to embellish wearing apparel and add decorative touches to interior furnishings.
Now available in one convenient guidebook are forty-nine Irish crochet patterns that offer today's needlecrafters an inexpensive introduction to — or perhaps a renewed acquaintance with — a beautiful form of ornamentation. Taken from a variety of thread company leaflets of the 1930s and '40s, these lovely designs include a table doily, a bedspread composed of delicate floral motifs, exquisite lace edgings, a romantic Renaissance collar, and much more.   
Newcomers to Irish crochet will appreciate the clear, easy-to-follow instructions and detailed illustrations. Veteran needleworkers and those familiar with the elements of this fine craft will find the more ambitious pieces inspirational and challenging.
