Stunning Russian Crochet

Just had to share this link – absolutely stunning crochet jacket – irish crochet style, but multi coloured – I’m trying to work out how it was done.

it’s in russian, but google has a translate button – some of the translation is a bit weird – and it’s not knitting, definitely crochet!

there are lots more pictures and close-ups on the site

    Does she crochet?

  3. It really doesn’t look like crochet, it is so intricate.

  4. If you can even ‘think’ about how it was done…you must crochet beautifully…I just LOOK…Diane

      there are some close-ups on the website – so I could give it a go. I did some irish crochet some years ago. Getting a suitable yarn would help. I may get round to it – at the moment it’s just for inspiration. – btw, knowing how to do it is not the same as crocheting beautifully.
      thanks for the comment, Diane… Sandra

    AJHird says: It is so beautiful and delicate. I have done crochet and enjoy it much more than knitting.

  6. Wow, that’s just gorgeous. I had no idea you could achieve such effects with crochet.

    Beautiful! I have done a lot of crochet work in my life, but nothing quite as intricate as this. I have always said I think I was born with a crochet hook in my hand. It just seemed to come naturally to me, and I was doing it probably by the time I was 8. My grandmother made many afghans, bedspreads, tablecloths. I have crocheted quite a few afghans and done fine lace edgings for a couple of tablecloths as well as for other projects. Check out my post where you can see the 1″ dolls I used to clothe with crochet clothes. http://diane-stephenson.com/produce-pleasure-and-profit-creating-crafts-part-1 For some reason, this one doesn’t have booties, but I usually made those too.

      Your crafts are beautiful, Diane. I taught myself to crochet from a booklet when I was In the sixth form. I’m planning on posting some photos of my efforts at some time. I can’t imagine doing clothes for 1″ dolls, the finest work I’ve sone is lace edgings for nighties.

    Never would have guessed that was crochet. Beautiful work. Wish I had the patience to learn that.
