Amazing Crochet Laceby Doris Chan
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
