The name of this book, Vintage Modern Crochet: Classic Crochet Lace Techniques for Contemporary Style, (Amazon affiliate link to paperback version) is exactly that; vintage crochet with a twist for the modern fashion in mind. Robin Chachula, the author, brings us a collection of gorgeous, collaborated patterns using vintage designs from some amazing crochet designers whose talent I admire and aspire to have.
One of my favorite things, and there are several, of this book is the brief history and introduction of each type of vintage crochet talked about in this book, such as the different, beautiful lace techniques found in the fashions of our past. Even though these techniques have been around for a long time, transcends time, the designers in this book add that modern flair for practical wearables.
The finished projects in this book and the images alone are to die for! They are exquisite and something that I envision myself sitting down one day to crochet one or all of them. And these designs range from the very simple of jewelry to the complicated of shawls with different combination of stitches.
This book is for the crocheter who has mastered the basic crochet techniques. While I believe that any crocheter can push through experienced designs, it will help to have mastered the basics before diving in this book. It is a book that will introduce you to new techniques and push your skills past the threshold of basic. It’s a book that will be a joy to use while learning something new, or adding to your skills.
The Vintage Modern Crochet: Classic Crochet Lace Techniques for Contemporary Style (Amazon affiliate link to Kindle version) book has been beautifully put together. It’s a crochet pattern book that any crocheter should have in their crochet library. It will certainly help to elevate your already wonderful style.
If you pick up the book, I do hope that you find something exquisite for you to make for yourself and wear. These designs also make great gifts for folks who love vintage clothing.
As always, much love and happy hooking!
