Editorial Reviews

Review

"Prolific fiber crafts author Hubert (Plus Size Crochet) presents a wide variety of crocheted lace motifs in this collection, which consists of a stitch dictionary, projects, and a guide to the specialized techniques of Bruges lace and Irish and freeform crochet. The projects focus on garments and accessories and include the standard shawls, shells, and hats often found in crochet books. All of the patterns feature both written and charted directions, and a guide to crochet chart symbols is also provided. Basic knowledge of crochet techniques and stitches is assumed.
Verdict The stitch dictionary isn’t comprehensive, but crocheters who are interested in exploring lacework or designing their own lacework patterns will appreciate the focus, and the sections on Irish crochet and Bruges lace may introduce these techniques to a wider audience." - Library Journal

As the title suggests, this book is for the "Adventurous" crocheter. It seems targeted toward the experienced crocheter who wants to go to the next level. The book is a mix of stitch gallery and of project patterns. Traditional, Irish, Freeform and Bruges Lace are all covered in this book. For each there is a brief introduction to the type of lace, a gallery of a few stitches/trims/motifs and a few projects. The chapter titles are: Crocheted Lace (stitch patterns), Edges & Trims (stitch patterns), Crocheted Lace Projects (using some of the stitch patterns and introducing others), Irish & Freeform Crochet (motif patterns and projects) and Bruges Lace (projects).

In total, there are 21 lace stitch patterns, 10 lace trims and 7 motif patterns. All of these include written instructions, a chart and a clear photo. Many of these also show the stitch pattern or trim in more than one yarn choice, which helps to show off the lacy potential of the pattern. In addition, there are about 20 projects throughout the book, covering a variety of project types. There are sweaters, wraps, scarves and other wearables, as well as a few home decor items. The projects are nicely laid out with fully written out instructions and schematics, but generally no charts. The only projects with charts are the three doilies in the Bruges Lace chapter. It should be noted that almost all projects in this book are rated as Intermediate or Experienced. There are only a couple of Easy projects.

I have rated the book only four stars for a couple of reasons. First, the introductions to each lace type are very brief.

This is my first review, and I wish I didn't feel the need to make it, but this book is not worth the money. You can find every stitch pattern for free in any "stitch dictionary" that's online. The patterns themselves are not anything close to "adventurous." I was expecting complicated patterns, intricate stitch designs, but I found the same, and I mean same, stitch patterns as I have in my other stitch dictionaries.

This book had such potential, but it just fell flat. I would not suggest it to anyone.

This book is not "adventurous" in any way. The projects aren't nice, very few stitch patterns, and the Irish lace section leaves a lot to be desired. I was hoping to learn how to crochet the mesh between motifs but all it shows is motifs stitched onto a mesh piece which is the dumbed down version for people who don't know how to do it. I could have done that myself without buying this book. Everything in it, I already know how to do and it's easy stuff beginners could do. I guess expected it to be for more experienced crocheters. I think there are better books out there. . .

This book is missing an editor. There are egregious typos and actual missing words, sentences, non-words - it's just awful.

Examples:

P. 91 "backgrounmethod";

P. 92 "The most beautiful examples of Irish crochet are done in very fine thread, usually worked While we love the look of Irish crochet..."

Ms. Hubert has very nice patterns here, and the motifs provided are likewise interesting. But pity the poor inexperienced crocheter getting frustrated with errors which are no doubt also in the directions! (Thank goodness for charts, a tremendous help.)

Had the text been edited properly, I could have given this five stars. I almost gave it two.

This book is not worth the money. The patterns are not correct and need to be revised. Then maybe after this the book would be great. I have had to redo each pattern I have tried to crochet. Direction are lacking step by step. So I have been very disappointed in my purchase.

I made several lace and lace trimmed scarves for Christmas. I like that this book includes charts as well as written instructions. It's so much easier to create your own project when you can compare a photo to a chart.

Inspiring and imaginative. Like the few projects in it. The photo dictionary of lace crochet stitches are lovely to study and refer to.
I especially like it that the author has included charts for the stitches along with a clear close up photo. I dislike books without charts and reading crochet instructions is not my favorite thing. I am very adept at it, but why do things the hard way?

The amount of freeform crochet used is just as much as I like to see it. I am glad I got this book.
I will make some things from it after the holiday gift rush is over.

The different patterns offered in this book are WONDERFUL. I love different ideas for shawls, throws, afghans, etc. And this book gives me quite a database to do that.
