The 1909 Priscilla Irish Crochet Pattern Book No.1 and 1912 Priscilla Irish Crochet Pattern Book No.2 give complete, step-by-step, illustrated working directions for dozens of classic motifs, background stitches, borders, beadings, medallions, etc, plus ways to combine them into bonnets, purses, gowns, collars, bags, doilies, and so on.
The illustrations of motifs and finished work are remarkably attractive and are large enough to be easily copied, with the assistance of the very complete directions.
Irish Crochet workers who do not possess this Priscilla Irish Crochet Pattern Book (2-Volume Set) would find it a most valuable addition to their needlework library.
Of all the different kinds of lace known as "Irish" that called "Irish Crochet" is the most durable, serviceable and popular. It is made in three distinct styles at the present time: one is slightly padded, one is heavily padded, while a third has no padding. The heavily padded lace is considered the most valuable and is well worth the extra time and trouble spent on it, as it is practically everlasting. 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.
