  I've never made anything with Irish crochet..just played around with it 
some.  Mostly because I remember as a child:  my grandmother used to make the 
rose motifs...sort of as "granny squares"..but the layered  Irish 
ones...added leaves to the edges and finished them square to make into 
bedspreads (which for some reason no one can find!!!).  She kept tiny dolls 
in her crochet basket..and when a granddaughter was around..she would give us 
a doll..and one of the flowers for a "dress"...head thru the hole, arms under 
the first row of petals..  They were wonderful!
