Crochet-Lace Druid Robes – WIP

I have just completed the first hundred rows of my first set of crochet-lace druid robes, using Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3 cotton crochet thread, and a #4 steel hook.  It is a top-down design of my own making — well, it will have been of my own making, once the project is complete.  I refuse to acknowledge how many rows of lace I had to frog, and rework, to adjust the fit.  The pattern is only written down after I have gotten it right.

The plan is to make many more oak leaves to adorn the yoke area, and also to adorn a similar panel at the bottom of the robe.  One day, there will be sleeves.  And the peplum, which has just been started, will be extended down to knee-ish length, so as to keep the white lace out of the dust and mud.

The above photo represents four months of steady work.  But who’s counting?
