Product Overview

Everything crochet is new again!

Doris Chan is not just a crochet designer?she is a self-described ?fiberazza, tinkerer, and crochet advocate.? And yet, when it came to exploring a few of the more traditional crochet techniques, such as Broomstick, Hairpin, and Tunisian crochet, she resisted. Why would anyone be interested in these antiquated methods? Who wants to struggle with strange hooks, sticks, and looms anyway?

After Doris took a few choice crochet classes taught by her peers, the answer soon became abundantly clear.Broomstick, Hairpin, and Tunisian lace are incredibly cool. The methods are easy to learn, and the results look spectacular?completely unlike anything else.

So now, Doris has officially caught the bug, and she is eager to share her own twist on these techniques.Crochet Lace Innovations is a collection of 20 stylish designs that use these treasured crochet lace methods to create garments that are not only modern and flattering, but custom-fit to a broad range of sizes.

Chapters include designs using not only these three classic methods, but also the ?exploded?lace (working lace patterns in thicker yarn for a completely eye-opening effect) that has become Doris's signature. In all, you will find:

? Broomstick Lace
? Hairpin Lace
? Tunisian Lace
? Exploded Motifs
? Exploded Doily Lace
? Exploded Lace Trim

Tutorials at the beginning of chapters help the reader learn the simple methods necessary for making each kind of lace. And a special Garment 101 section provides an essential template for crocheters to follow in order to make infinitely adaptable and wonderfully versatile patterns.

With 20 projects from wraps and scarves to skirts and dresses to collars and belts,Crochet Lace Innovations brings this enduring craft into a new, decidedly contemporary, light.
