I love Freeform Crochet and now Myra Wood has given us a book that explores the many facets of making Freeform Crochet Lace. The best way I can explain it is to imagine Irish Crochet Lace gone wild, meandering off its pre-assigned path into the wilds of random curlicues, spirals and frills. An apt metaphor for the crochet work would be the backgrounds of the magnificent photographs: the lovely scenes of a wildflower garden. These are no simple rows of flowers, neatly pruned or trimmed.

Freeform crochet and knitting is a seemingly random combination of crochet, knitting and in some cases other fibre arts to make a piece that is not constrained by patterns, colours, stitches or other limitations. The roots of this art are thought to be in Irish crochet, whose own identity came to the fore in the 1960s and 1970s. The late 20th and early 21st centuries have seen a revival and progression of this form of textile expression.

This book has beautiful freeform crochet lace. This type of crochet does not have a pattern to follow. The author, Ms. Wood explains to draw and cut out a template of what sort of shape you want using paper or muslin. One of the techniques is to crochet freeform motifs in different shapes, lay them out on your template pattern and connect them using chain stitches to make a netting.

I have been crocheting for many years and love to experiment with my work so when Myra Wood released this book, I was very curious about it. Myra's work in freeform crochet and her bead work are legendary so I had a feeling that her book would be very inspiring as well. I couldn't have been more right!

Let me start by saying that this book is not a line by line pattern book, nor is is a stitch guide or any other traditional crochet format that you may be used to. It IS, however, a wonderful guide teaching the reader easy to follow techniques for creating totally freeform garments using your own creative ideas. She has outlined several styles of freeform crochet lace, given ways in which to shape and style the work, how to lay it out properly, techniques to join the smaller pieces you may have into a larger item, and things to consider about fit and drape as you work.

This book is a beautifully laid out, easy read with gorgeous photography and lots of very good, sound advice for anyone wanting to get into the field of freeform crochet.

Thank you Myra, for such a wonderful book!!!

I love Freeform Crochet and now Myra Wood has given us a book that explores the many facets of making Freeform Crochet Lace. The best way I can explain it is to imagine Irish Crochet Lace gone wild, meandering off its pre-assigned path into the wilds of random curlicues, spirals and frills. An apt metaphor for the crochet work would be the backgrounds of the magnificent photographs: the lovely scenes of a wildflower garden. These are no simple rows of flowers, neatly pruned or trimmed. Similarly, the five different styles of Freeform Crochet Lace which are well explained and demonstrated (Funky Filet, Doodle Lace, Tossed Salad, Wild Irish Crochet and Organic Lace Scrumbling) allow the reader to wander from the garden path and begin crocheting among the wildflowers, so to speak. Once you have gained confidence with the various techniques, Ms. Wood explains how to draw templates (taken from garments you already own or following the general outlines of the templates she has sketched) on which to build your lace, thereby allowing you to recreate the fashions in the book IN YOUR OWN STYLE. There are no step-by-step patterns to follow here. You must, instead, let the yarn and your heart guide your fingers and free your mind, thus having all the fun of crocheting freeform-style while creating beautiful lace.

I would recommend this book to the crocheter looking for some fresh and pretty designs. I want to emphasize the prettiness of the patterns. This is not your grandmother's pattern book as the designs are unique. I find too often crochet design books feature patterns that are stale or in some cases bordering on ugly and not something you'd want to actually wear. Some of these patterns may present a challenge, but the results will be worth the effort.
