Publisher Comments:

Crochet just got chic.

From the runways of Paris to the sidewalks of small towns, crochet has emerged as a cool and sophisticated fashion trend.

And 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. Chans designs brilliantly translate old-fashioned lace patterns into fun, funky attire by substituting bright, chunky yarns for delicate fibers and increasing gauge and hook sizes. The result is a lovely, intricate lace pattern that only looks like it was difficult to produce. And 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 youve never tried to crochet before, Amazing Crochet Lace is a wonderful introduction to the charm and beauty of lace. And if youre a pro, youll be thrilled with the lovely, fresh designs you can create with the skills you already possess.

Synopsis:

Updating traditional lace patterns into wearable art by applying favorite motifs to create chic crocheted attire, Chan presents 20 fresh, fantastic designs for beginning and advanced crocheters alike. Full color.

About the Author

Doris Chan began crocheting when she was eight years old. She spent twenty years working in broadcast radio, crocheting just for fun. In 2002, her original crochet shawl appeared on the Lion Brand Yarn Company website, and she leapt into the world of crochet design almost overnight. Since then, her designs have appeared in publications such as Family Circle Easy Knitting, Crochet!, Vogue Knitting, Interweave Crochet, and Knitscene magazines, and in several books, including the Lion Brand Just series. She is an active member of the Crochet Guild of America. This is her first book.

This book is truly amazing. The instructions are clear and easy to understand, and the projects look very wonderful when finished. I've made two of the designs, including the cover project, and have gotten great feedback. The Mobius scarf is the most fun. I highly recommend this book
