However, lace crochet patterns look more difficult than they truly are.
There are four main types of lace crochet:
- broomstick lace (which uses a much larger hook to create larger “holes” in the lace),
- filet crochet (which creates a pattern out of traditional lace and a type of mesh design with the help of charts),
- hairpin lace (a hairpin lace tool creates lace looks as if joined by a spine or ridge down the middle), and
- Irish crochet (intricate designs and motifs worked in very fine thread).
Superfine threads and a smaller hook create more intricate and delicate designs. However, a more modern approach is to work up lacy designs in a more worsted weight yarn, as in this pattern.
