Here is an apron made up in a lacy mesh stitch somewhat distantly related to Irish crochet. The original was made of a mercerized thread about the size of number 5 pearl cotton; use size 7 crochet hook. A very pretty thing would result from the use of rayon crochet thread. White was used for the model, though pastels or even black would be pretty. The flowers may contract, if desired, or they may be of same color. If desired, yellow centers may be used, color for the petals and green to connect the flowers. For a black apron, yellow flowers might be pretty.
The apron is about 26 inches wide and can be made as long or short as desired.
