Filigree is simply a celebration of crochet. Using Summerlite 4ply this beautiful and very feminine collection of ten openwork designs reflects the true elegance of this traditional craft.

Colour is the inspiration for this edition: two or more different coloured yarns cleverly combined to produce a multitude of patterns, each presented as a clear, easy-to-follow chart and a knitted stitch sample.
