‘’As always, please feel free to use these patterns as much as you like, but please refer back to this post to share the pattern so that we can continue to post them for free!’’

Skill level

This is a beginner’s project.

Size or measurements of the finished item.

The sizes will vary based on supplies used, hook size and other factors.

 Materials list required for the crochet lace.

  • Yarn or Crochet Thread: You can use just about any size yarn to make this project. We have used Anchor Size 10 Tread
  • Crochet Hook Size:  we used a size I.5 mm steel crochet hook.
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends.
  • Hair bands.


The weight of the yarn you choose together with the hook size will indicate the finished size of the lace you make.

That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each to fit the needs of your project. If the lace is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same lace could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook as we have used in this project
