Item Description
Priscilla Irish Crochet Book No. 1
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. 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."

This book explains the different stitches, then gives instructions for making many different kinds of motifs and borders. Once these are completed, they can be assembled into many different designs as can be seen in the third set of pictures. Finally, these motifs, borders and designs can be used to make the most beautiful crocheted items; hats, purses, collars, cuffs, yokes, coats or even the exquisite wedding dress shown in the final set of pictures.

The marvel of Irish crochet is its versatility; you can easily use the various motifs and designs to adorn your clothing, handbags, coats, baby items or anything else your imagination wishes!
