Abstract:

Every crocheter admires the delicacy and elegance of vintage lace. The originals were stitched with finer thread than we use today, making that heirloom-quality crochet lace an elusive dream. This guide showcases a collection of antique tablecloths and bedspreads--each a magnificent example of the crocheter's art--and revises the old techniques to suit today's threads. Complete patterns are included for each project, along with instructions and full-page photos that make intricate designs easy to follow. Special attention is paid to working with traditional steel hooks and choosing the perfect crochet threads, and plenty of advice is offered for working in filet. These projects take time, but the results will become tomorrow's heirlooms.--From publisher description.
