Wow! This is so cool! Even shows where to put the hook, which nobody shows. I would not have had NEARLY so much trouble learning plain TC if I'd had this book to follow. Great job, ARNie! ~Linda

Regular Crochet Lace: Lattice  Stitches

Lattice Stitch
This is one of the simplest, yet most effective stitches when creating lace.
Round 1: any stitch can be used.
Round 2: *Ch 5, Sk 3 sts, Sc. *Repeat as needed to complete round/row, except for last st.  Ch 2 and Dc into base of beg ch.
Round 3: *Ch 5, Sc into next Ch 5 loop. *Repeat as needed to complete Row, except for last st. Ch 2 and Dc into base of beg ch.
As the rounds increase, you will need to increase the number of chains in the loops, or increase the number of loops in the round.  This will prevent the piece from curling.  Fig 1.

King's Crown Edging
This design pattern is created by adding a Picot Stitch to chains which will produce a pronounced 'point.'

Round/Row 1: any stitch can be used.
Round/Row 2: *Ch 3. Place your thumb over these stitches. Work Picot Stitch. Ch 3, Sc in next appropriate stitch to anchor point.  

(Next stitch could be a Chain Loop of the Lattice Stitch. OR, if the previous round is solid stitches such as Sc, Hdc, or Dc, then skip several stitches before anchoring the point with the Sc.  The more stitches you skip, the smaller the point will be.)
