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

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