An Outstanding Book on Crochet Lace

First of all, yes, the book does include instructions for the beautiful gloves on the cover!  It also includes well-researched history of crochet.  Hooks, charts, abbreviations, and all the essentials are covered as well as the great variety of techniques: filet, Irish crochet, and even joining daisy-loom flowers.

This book is written in British terminology, but provides conversion charts for hook sizes and stitch names.  Avid crocheters are already familiar with the differences and should have no trouble using this book on either side of the pond.

I received a free review copy of Crochet Lace by Pauline Turner from NetGalley for my honest review.
