My Irish vest


My Irish vest is a charted pattern from Japanese book called " Crochet lace". It was my first attempt making an Irish garment. I have made many Irish motif from Priscilla book number 1, and 2. I also have made many Irish backgrounds. The point was to use both motifs with backgrounds. I have made an Irish doily, but it was just motifs connected with each other there is no background in it. I can say that working motifs with background is more difficult, and more thrilled too.
This pattern exhausted me because I didn't try doing motif with background before it. I think it was overhasty step, and I should to try with something simpler. despite all these difficulties, I also can say that I have learned many things doing this pattern, but I have learned it in a hard way. LOL

This pattern is flat pattern-it is a pattern with no darts in it; it is the most common pattern in knit and crochet garments. The most beautiful thing about an Irish garment is ,you can use the 2d pattern-it is pattern with breast dart, waist dart, side dart, and also back dart. Of course you can use some of these darts or all of them to make a very fit garment. It is pattern we use it in a sewing clothes. I saw many 2d patterns in some magazines which care about an Irish garments, and I love them so much; it is really special garments. Hope I can make one of these garments one day, but I think I really need a lot of practice doing motifs with different backgrounds before I start making this complicated pattern.

I also like the modern magazines which care about an Irish crochet, and see them revive this art to our life. I think it is better to use it in a modern way than to buried it in our memories, and just say " oh it WAS a wonderful art".
