I picked up crocheting several months ago, and moved from yarn to lace this week. Although it looks like a mere change in the thickness of the thread, well it’s just a lot more than that!!
I managed to pull off my first lace piece yesterday. The yarn I used is Olympus “emmy grande”, probably the thickest in crochet lace family, about 1.5mm. I had a difficult time matching the front and back pieces. This is the trick about lace crocheting. You have to hold a very stead hand all the time.
I added a lot of pearl white beads, gives it a gentle glow. The purse is so mini that it can barely hold ten coins.
