Remember the lace collars?
Wore them with a sweater!
Made by my Mom and my Grandma:
Now I'm sorry I didn't pay attention to Mom when she wanted to teach me how to crochet....
I remember mt grandmother crocheting a bedspread and one day pulling out perhaps three inches of it because she spied a mistake. That must have been a days worth of lost work.
That must have been heart breaking to do - all that work!Crochet patterns are very complicated!
Youtube will help you learn any needle-art you are interested in learning. Here is a playlist for one on beginning crochet, tons more if you put in 'beginning crochet' in the search engine.https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLsrz34yAA5ToUEREiH2jzUNIjMfY1Af1bIf you join Ravelry there are tons of free patterns. Crochet or knitting patterns are not complicated once you learn the lingo, like any skill.
Thank you for the link, Judy!!! She makes it look easy to learn - Will have to dig out Mom's crochet hooks! :o)
Go for it! It is easy, but start with sweater weight yarn and a larger hook before going to those steel hooks you can barely see the end of.By the way, photo #1 and 2 look to be tatting (a type of lace-making) and not crochet. Which is a whole 'nother skill set. Bet you have the shuttle in amongst your mother's or grandmother's needlecraft tools.
There are lots of metal hooks of different sizes, flat pieces of ivory with holes in each end and metal gauges with sliders on them. I know how to use my Grandma's 'knitting' spool - but that's the only one I know. I still have her button tin!
