Week 19: 8th May – 15th May 2013

pillowcases irish crochet lace

A few weeks back I made a couple of strips of Irish crochet lace. After various ponderings, I decided to attach them to pillowcases. Had to be hand-stitched on, due to the thinness of the heading strip on the lace, but look quite good. (So modest!). The pattern for this came from a J & P Coats publication : Irish Crochet, book no. 535. They still produce crochet cottons, patterns, and other craft materials.Ā  The copyright belongs to Coats, and they will not permit a PDF of the pattern to be made available on-line, even though the booket is out of print. You can however find a similar pattern here: and here

      Anchor 12, and worked with a 1.25mm hook. My mum came home brandishing an old J P Coats booklet from 1968 – picked up in a charity shop and given me to play with (she doesn’t do crochet). I’m intending to scan it in at some point so that others can play as well!
