Of the various bobbin lace types, "torchon" lace is probably the best for a beginner to tackle. Based on a combination of attractive motifs with a geometrical ground, it uses a simple range of stitches to produce relatively speedy and gratifying results. Exercises cover:
-the half stitch
-the whole stitch
-Scandinavian holes
-plaits and picots
The book includes 27 projects for lace, including nursery lace, fans, hearts, borders, and edgings, collars, frills, coasters, squares, handkerchiefs, and more. Clear, full-color photographs and color-coded diagrams are of great pratical help. Beginners will welcome this book with its concise, progressive approach: experts will find a wealth of original designs to add to their repertoire.
