Synopsis
A colorful take on crochet lace! Crochet lace is more popular than ever, and Colorful Crochet Lace brings it to life in living color. Designer Mary Jane Hall has created a stunning collection of 22 chic and wearable lace garments and accessories. You'll find a wardrobe's worth of colorful lace designs from chic shrugs and scarves, to cozy cardigans and tunics, to stylish dresses, T-shirts, and totes. The designs include simple, allover openwork patterns, as well as more intricate crochet lace patterns and motifs, which are worked in a variety of yarn weights and in a glorious range of colors from elegant jewel tones to earthy neutrals. Several of the projects are constructed using the Graduated Stitch Method, a technique Mary Jane developed that allows for shaping and customized fit without increases or decreases, and many of the patterns include instructions for modifying designs and creating variations. With clear instructions, detailed stitch diagrams, and gorgeous photography, Colorful Crochet Lace makes it easy and fun to create exquisite crochet fashions.

"As we've come to expect from the folks at Interweave, great diagrams, beautiful color photos and even symbol crochet bring together all the tools the crocheter need to achieve great results. I loved reading Mary Jane's introduction, and felt like I was right there in the room with her as she shared her excitement for creating this book of chic crochet patterns for us. Inspired by the architecture, fashions, gardens and culture of France, the patterns all carry French-inspired names. I couldn't wait to take a look at this collaborative approach and to see how Mary Jane translated her inspiration into crochet!" --Crochet Queen
