I'm talking about doilies here, and pillowcase and hankie edgings, and all the kind of lacy thread crochet there is. Is it acceptable to discuss it in this group despite its lack of sophistication? Here are some of my projects of the sort:

I am following this.  I would like more instruction on basic crochet lace for the linens you mention--mostly household.  Thank you for any guidance.

What I know, I will happily share, but I am no expert. The thing I like best is sideways-worked edgings (from the narrow end) because then you can make as much as you need without trying to estimate in advance how long it's going to be. There are narrow ones and wide ones. It is good to learn to read charts. This edging is one of my designs, called Anita, and the picture shows it done in size 10 and size 30 thread. The diagram is for this design.

So long as it is lace, rather than blankets or solid work, yes. Irish crochet is the furthest development of crochet in the direction of lace.
