Crochet lace edgings are both beautiful to look at and enjoyable to make, and can be used to finish, alter, or decorate a wide variety of crafts, clothing, and homewares. In this book, you'll find a lovely and diverse collection of 75 crochet edging patterns, ranging from simple to ornate, and including airy geometric patterns, lush chains of leaves and flowers,and charming pictures.
Each design comes with an easy-to-follow guide, including written patterns, instructions for turning corners, stitch charts, and full-sized photos. And there are plenty of project ideas for your finished lace that will suit every taste and skill level: from delicate adornments for a handkerchief or greetings cards, to larger scale work ideal for customizing clothing, or beautiful trims that will transform a simple pillow or table runner into an eye-catching showpiece.
