Delicate Crochet uses a lightweight yarn (#3 or below) to create almost a lace effect in the twenty-three projects described.
The projects include four cardigans, two pullover sweaters, one vest, one poncho, one summer top, one skirt, one necklace and a pair of fingerless gloves. There are also four wraps, three shawls, one cowl, and three scarves. All have extensive pictures and schematics of both the size and the stitches used to make the garment. Sizes extend from extra-small to extra-large depending on the pattern. The techniques vary from regular crochet to broomstick lace to Tunisian crochet.
If you like to crochet, Delicate Crochet is perfect. It has new ideas for how to modernize the crochet look to be more polished. It has excellent instructions and illustrations. 4 stars!
