Item Description
Priscilla Irish Crochet Book No. 2
Published by The Priscilla Publishing Co.
Boston, Mass. 1912

This is a PDF Digital Reproduction of a popular crochet book published in 1912, with 48 pages. The book is a publication of further designs introduced in the Priscilla Irish Crochet I book. The first book illustrates the various stitches. This book does not, but does have an explanation. If you are familiar with the various crochet stitches, you can make these designs. You don't need Priscilla Crochet I book to use this
book.

The first book explains. Irish crochet has a distinct advantage over other types of crochet.
Irish Crochet "is made in three distinct styles...one is slightly padded, one is heavily padded, while a third has no padding."..."Irish crochet has this advantage also over every other kind of hand-made lace, that it can be taken to pieces, altered into new shapes, as fashion dictates, and any motif that gets worn out can be replaced at will by a new one."

Different edgings and medallions can be assembled into many different designs. These designs can be used to make lovely accessories. Priscilla Crochet 2 has an emphasis on accessories. Edgings and insertions together with medallions can be assembled to make necklaces, pendants, belts, buckles, buttons, bows, purses, jabots, collars, cuffs and trim. Some of the medallions in this book have the shape of shamrocks, flowers and butterflies. There are also patterns for doilies and a baby bonnet and bootees.

You can follow the patterns in this book or you can be creative and design your own
accessories!
