Originally published in the 1910s, this classic A.W.B. pattern book contains over one hundred original designs in Irish crochet, filet crochet and Venetian (or macramé) crochet, such as gift novelties in neckwear, hat pins, pin sets, handkerchiefs, towels, velvet bow slides, with crocheted flowers or butterflies, aster, daisy, shamrock, leaf and other motifs, a yoke in Bebe Irish, three crochet collar and cuff sets with bags to match, five lingerie sets (medallions, insertions and edgings to match), Venetian scarf ends, etc. As the book also gives correct position of hands and needle, stitches and lessons fully illustrated, it's a wonderful reference for beginners.
Venetian or Macramé Crochet is deservedly popular. It works up quickly, is not trying to the eyesight, is serviceable and effective; and if a good pattern and a beautiful thread be chosen, is decidedly handsome and artistic. Stamped patterns for all of the designs in this book have been carefully prepared. This eliminates the chief difficulty as the pattern shows just where to place the motifs and indicates the lines of filling or the connecting bars. The patterns are accurate and will work out successfully with the instructions given.
