This week I had a big break at work so I decided to teach myself how to crochet.  However, granny squares didn't interest me.  So I picked up a book called "はじめてのレースあみドイリー" (beginners lace doily)  I was surprised at how quickly I picked it up!  Maybe it was because of my years of knitting.

My question is:  I want to progress from making doilies.  They are cute, but there must be more stuff out there.  For example, something like this: http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-030 .  Does anyone have any good lace clothing patterns?

Also, any others out there that love doing lace?  Cheesy

Thanks!

I've done a few doilies and really liked it. I'm considering doing a tablecloth now, but the commitment scares me.  Lace is wonderful.  Gets a lot of funny looks when people see me doing it on the bus, though.

That pattern is beautiful. Reminds me of the style of things I've seen in Interweave Crochet. Check that magazine out if you haven't already. It has nice patterns and is also very informative beyond just providing patterns.

i'm not very good at the lace, but there's a beautiful lacey jacket called "go for baroque" in debbie stoller's happy hooker book that you might like - i love it but don't have the necessary skills!

Since posting this thread, I got a couple replies on here and PM.  However, I am still interested in some lacy resources.  Also, are there any people on here that does lacey stuff? I'd love to see their goods.

You're in luck!  Doris Chan's new book "Amazing Lace Crochet" just came out.  I got my copy this week from Amazon and it is filled with cool lace garments.  They're mostly easy too.  GRAB A COPY!
