The Story of Clones Lace, How to Make Clones Lace, Twenty-One Motifs, Some Edgings,
Working with Linen, Irish Crochet, Twelve Projects, and Footnotes. This is a very personal

is devoted to the history and presence of Irish crochet around Clones in Ireland, and the
second half has instructions for basic crochet and then patterns for Irish crochet motifs
