Replicating antique and vintage crochet patterns is one of my hobbies, I really like antique lace, and would like to share this one here with you.
Here is the pattern, please comment if you find any errors.
My Version of the Pattern:
**: repeat instructions between
Dc: double crochet
hdc: half double crochet
V stitch: hdc, ch 2, hdc
US crochet terms. Hook and thread of whatever suitable size.
- Ch 27, skip 4ch, *4dc, ch2, 4dc in next space, sk 4 ch*, repeat instructions between * twice more. Ch 3, sk 4 ch, dc in 4th chains, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in 3rd, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in last chain.
- Ch 5, turn, hdc, ch 2, hdc (V stitch made), ch 3, V stitch, ch 3, V stitch.
- Ch 3, sk 4 ch, dc in 4th chains, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in 3rd, ch 2, sk 3 chains, dc in last chain.
- Repeat from 2nd row.
I reserve the right to tweak the pattern if needed.
Here is the picture of the lace, borrowed from the website (and hosted here on my blogger). I created the pattern from the image.
