I have some patterns but have never tried the Irish crochet. Would you be
willing to list the Dover books you have?
Oh, I have tried a couple of versions of the basic rose and loved it.
I'm a big fan of the Ondori books. I started buying them when they first
came out but don't recall a Irish crochet one.
