irish crochet coaster


.

Intricate lace not only intrigues me -- it instills in me a passion & desire to recreate it. And irish crochet is one of those delicate, yet gorgeous laces that just leaves me breathless.

.


.
One of my past issues of MAGIC CROCHET (Oct. 2002 -- issue 140) includes a crochet pattern for an irish crochet coaster.

.

.
An added bonus? It is shown in Christmas colors.



,
Perfect.

.

So using my size 5 crochet hook and crochet thread that I purchased from the thrift store, I made one little irish crochet coaster that seemed so well suited for this one little, vintage Christmas figurine.

Here is what I wonder...was the pattern designed for under the figurine or was the figurine designed to sit on the lace? Too cute!
