Forwards by Joanne Scrace of The Crochet Project
At The Crochet Project we love a good shawl, and we know you do too so we are back with another collection.
All the previous books in the collection featured designs for 4ply/fingering weight yarn. This one is a bit different: each pattern uses laceweight yarn. .
I used to be slightly afraid of finer yarn, I found it fiddly and thought it took too long to work up. But as I started to play around with it, I created patterns that are naturally quick to grow and where the need to find tiny spaces to put your hook are minimised. Now I love laceweight: it gives a finesse to every pattern you create with it and the delicate stitches can add a layer of magic to even the most ordinary stitches.
The shawls themselves are light as a feather and so small to pack into a bag. As for the extra time? Just see it as better value for money on your hobby! The ultimate in slow fashion.
Find the joy of laceweight for yourself with this selection of five patterns.
The book contains five patterns for crochet shawls. This book uses standard UK crochet terminology throughout. Translations to US terminology are given in the abbreviations sections.
