This book (pronounced Clo-ness) has lots of historical information from people who actually made Irish lace during the potato famine. Then it goes into the patterns and stitches with very easy to follow instructions and diagrams. I have recommended this book to everyone who asks me about Irish crocheted lace.
Maire Treanor walks crocheters (beginners to experienced) step-by-step in the building process of authentic Clones Lace from Ireland itself. We are so blessed that she has published a second edition that can be purchased from Lacis.com for only $28 (2010 edition).
"The story of Irish Crochet and its unique interpretation by the Clones lacemakers. The secrets unfold through detailed instructions, traditional motifs and patterns with the temptation to be challenged by the creative aspects of this Irish lace." (From Lacis.com) You can take her simple steps and very easily create your own designs to add to clothing or linens.
If you have ever been frustrated with trying to understand copies from vintage or antique Irish Crochet books, Maire puts lays the entire process out in a very easy-to-understand manner. Ms. Treanor teaches classes, too. You can find her by a simple Google search of her and her book.
