All crocheters stare  admiringly at vintage lace, wishing to replicate its delicacy and elegance. Because the originals were stitched with finer thread than we use today, making that gorgeous heirloom-quality crochet lace is often an elusive dream. This unique guide, however, showcases a collection of antique tablecloths and bedspreads—each a magnificent example of the crocheter’s art—and revises the old techniques to suit today’s threads. Complete patterns are included for each project, along with instructions and full-page photos that make intricate designs easy to follow. Special attention is paid to working with traditional steel hooks and choosing the perfect crochet threads, and plenty of advice is offered for working in filet. These projects may take time, but the results will become tomorrow’s heirlooms.
