I think this is a great book for crocheters like myself who primarily work in string, and love doilies or table runners. I am not interested in clothing, so bring on patterns and as many as you can. This book is loaded with different styles shapes and textures. I learned by learning the language of written out patterns, but the visual experience in these diagrammed patterns is a walk in the park for those who have prior experience. I've got about 10 years of thread crocheting under my belt and this book is one that I enjoy. The pineapple pattern is one of the easiest to make and this book has a very large collection of them. Some require a bit more understanding, but I believe there are patterns for all levels of talent. And by the time one uses this book, I believe each will become an intermediate to expert if they are not there already. Enjoy!

The doilies are really beautiful. All of them. Range in size from approx. 8" to 29". The photos are beautiful but the instructions can be difficult. They have some written instructions which, quite frankly, I don't understand at all. Either they are a style I don't understand or they are a poor translation. But they are also in that diagram style so you have to learn to read the symbols. Which is easier than I thought, so I don't mind. I've run in to a couple places I still couldn't figure out but I'm not an expert. I think the book is worth the money I paid. I look at it over and over and have started 5 doilies already because they are so so pretty! I should also say that most of the patterns are for round doilies but there is a triangle, a rectangle, a couple ovals and a pillow cover. I rated the book a 4 because it is so beautiful but the instructions can be sketchy. I really do recommend this book.

I used to get Magic Crochet pattern books years ago, that only had doilies. Later on they added other crochet patterns, scarves, sweaters, etc. which steered me away from them. I have not been able to find a doily pattern book with a visual pattern until Pineapple Lace: with complete diagrams. I would recommend to anyone who crochets, beginner or expert. It is so much easier to look at the pattern instead of having to read it.

Now in a newly revised edition, Pineapple Lace With Complete Diagrams is a collection of crochet patterns and instructions for intermediate to advanced practitioners. Each stunning design is shown in a full-color photograph and has instructions for its creation written in crochet shorthand alongside a detailed black-and-white pattern diagram. The finished projects include centerpieces and doilies, textured lace, tablecloths, cushions, and runners. An appendix includes brief instructions with diagrams displaying symbols and techniques used in the instructions, and tips for finishing crochet lace neatly. While prior familiarity with basic crochet steps is advised, the intricate patterns and creations here presented make Pineapple Lace With Complete Diagrams a confidently recommended resource for experienced crocheters to create beautiful decorations and handmade gifts.

I have crocheted with thread for 30 years now but always with the pattern written out and when I borrowed this book from the local library and it was all in symbols, I decided it was time to learn to read and interpret (go on to the next level). The patterns in this book makes gives one the desire to learn something new. I have to have my "own" copy. These patterns are sooo beautiful.
