A wonderful resource of vintage patterns for crocheted openwork. As most are based on the principle of joining numerous small pieces ("motifs"), the patterns are easily adapted to other uses, such as bedspreads, curtains, et cetera. Some of the simplest motifs can even be rendered in heavy yarn, lending a "period" touch to afghans for the home.

CAVEAT EMPTOR (buyer beware): the patterns are published as they appeared in their original formats, except that several booklets are gathered together in one binding. As such, MISTAKES IN THE ORIGINALS ARE NOT CORRECTED. Experience, skill, and good old ingenuity are sometimes needed to produce the required result. Fortunately the patterns are generously photographed (although NOT of digital quality!), so this is possible.

NOT FOR A BEGINNER or those who prefer not to work at tweaking a problematic pattern. I wish I could bestow three and a half stars: three stars because of the mistakes (the editor simply selected: original texts are not actually edited, nor is any errata page offered), but four stars because of scarcity of the material, which can no longer be found elsewhere.

This book is FULL of elegant lace tablecloths and placemats. If you are ready to dig into some thread crocheting, this book is for you. Crocheting tablecloths is a lost art, but there is nothing more elegant than a table set for dinner with your handmade tablecloth adorning it. The instructions are clear. There are plenty of varied projects to choose from. This book was given to me by a friend and it is now one of my favorites! Many of the projects are made using motifs plus there are many filet projects. In the book's 140 pages there are at least 160 different projects to choose from.

I am really into crocheting with thread and this book did not disappoint or leave that "hunger" wanting. From simple to complicated. All beautiful patterns.

This was a good item, but only for those who could use text as guiding to their work, which is an american style. If this was mentioned in the discretion I wouldn't buy it, because I can't understand or work with this style.
