from Chronicle Books: "Savvy crafters know that today's hippest designs hail from Japan. But it's near to impossible to find translated patterns. Or at least it used to be. With Lacy Crochet, we're proud to present one of the first two books in our brand new Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts line.
Lacy Crochet offers 22 patterns for delicate accessories sweetly rendered for the home and wardrobe. This book enjoyed huge success on its home shores.
The pages burst with quirky color photographs, step-by-step directions, and helpful technical illustrations. At last, the appeal of authentic Japanese content with the ease of English instruction."
8-1/4 x 9 in; 88 pages

Full-color photographs and illustrations throughout
