The author did a wonderful job of explaining how and even showing a way to do Irish Crochet in a "faux" mode which I especially liked. After reading this book, I now know why I don't do Irish Crochet as my life doesn't allow for the time it takes to make this beautiful and wonderful creations. There are plenty of motifs and six different fill-ins. The section on how to put them all together is well written and easy to follow. The whole book is done this way. Anyone who crochets can easily make Irish Crochet with this book. The first chapter explains how the padded rings, padded cords, knots, picots and other types of stitches are crocheted. Each has a traditional way and a updated way to make them. The motifs include flowers, leaves, acorns (yep 3D acorns), lace edgings, fill-in motifs, dangles and overlays. All are expertly explained as to how to create each item. If you want to learn Irish Crochet, this is the best book I have ever seen on the subject. You won't be disappointed if you buy a copy.
