Crochet lace patterns are truly a work of art. No matter what crochet pattern you make, it’s inevitable that it will end up looking beautiful.
Crochet lace stitches aren’t that much different from regular crochet stitches, so beginners, don’t worry! In fact, lace patterns use regular crochet techniques and stitches… it just adds some more open space between then instead of working to create a plush, dense fabric.
This pretty Star Lacey Motif is worked in one color. It is crocheted in the round starting in the center and working outward from there. This is an intermediate crochet project that works up quickly. The size of this Motif is 5 “.
Using the Motif –
Unlike most crochet patterns, this pattern has no gauge, no thread requirement and no hook sizes.
That’s because you can vary the size and appearance of each motif to fit the needs of your project. If the motif is for a bedspread, you could choose size 5 cotton thread and an appropriate hook, the same motif could be made with size 10 cotton thread and a similar hook for a doily.
When choosing the thread and hook for your project experiment with a variety of threads to achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.
