Product Overview

To the uninitiated, a lace pillow set up with dozens of bobbins looks very complicated, but this manual shows the simplicity of the basic moves: only four bobbins are in use at any one time, and there are only two moves--twist and cross. Focusing on Torchon lacemaking techniques--Bruges and Chantilly lace are two other well-known traditions--these lessons begin with small lace bookmarks worked in various designs before progressing to full-scale projects: a purse, a bag, a cushion, and two scarves. All are presented with step-by-step instructions, close-up photos, and a complete set of pricking patterns. Additional material covers techniques for adding beads and tassels and working with such unconventional materials as wire, cable, and thick wool yarn.
