DIY Tips

One of the key moments of crocheting elements for irish crochet lace garments is the proper edge. You can change the motive with it by adding a volume, shape or even accenting it in the canvas

To be honest - I follow he pattern only while working on a first couple of motives, before I get used to it, and after that use my imagination and create new types. And since I'm not the big fan of identical elements, I've already gathered a huge collection of floral elements. Of course it is not a classical symmetrical irish lace, but if you are planning to make a floral design it is very useful to have a big set of different leaves, just as they look in nature - some are small, some are of different shape or even layed on a different agngle from your point of vew. As a sample, these leaves were crocheted based on the same template, but each one had some changes implemented to that it looks more like a real hydrangea bush and not from a herbarium exposition. 
That is why I like the modern irish crochet, it is more like jazz, where you can improvize and create your own music based on the well known tune.

Soft yarn which can be used both for motives and mesh. Although motives are very gentle and may loose a volume. A mesh is alsovery soft, so if you are planning to crochet a streaming texture, this thread is the one.
