Review by Pia Thadani - Stitches'N'Scraps


Lace crochet is ideal for sweltering, summer days, when you don't necessarily want a heavy or warm project on your lap. Easy, Breezy, Crochet Lace is a fantastic collection of lace patterns, brought to us by Crochet! Magazine. It features over 35 designs, all excellent choices for summer crocheting.

If you're on the go this summer, try one of the designs from the "Little Lace Treasures" section. These projects are all smaller items, so you can easily throw them in a bag and take them with you while you're out and about. Best of all, they work up quickly, so you'll be wearing that pretty Shades of Spring cowl and darling Dragonfly Lace Hat in no time!

One of the things I love about lace is the "wow" factor. Lace designs have a way of looking so intricate and detailed, even when they're not. The New Looks in Lace section is full of show-stopping wearables that are sure to turn heads.

Most of the cute tops, shawls, and shrugs in this section would be great for spring or fall. Personally I would wear many of them even in the middle of winter, layered with warmer clothing. The Trellis Tee in particular caught my eye. It's a beautiful wear-to-work look all on it's own but would also look fabulous with a jacket...and it comes in my size!

Big, bold motifs take center stage in the next section, Exploded Lace. There are single-motif patterns like the Garden Lace Rug, as well as patterns that combine motifs. Bobbie's Lace Wrap, made up of  large flower motifs and smaller leaves, is definitely a statement piece!

If tops and shawls aren't your thing, don't worry! Whatever type of project you prefer, you'll find something to love in this collection. There are several jewelry patterns, home decor items, and more! Make any living room just "beachy" with the Trade Winds Throw and Sunburst Pillow. Or start on holiday gifting with pretty, Potpourri Pockets and Candle Shadows jar cozies. With so many patterns to choose from, you'll be making lace all year round!
