Spiders are, of course, a well-known feature of Torchon lace. Here, the author goes far beyond the usual cloth-stitch, presenting 83 different spiders.
For each spider there is a clear illustration, a coloured working diagram and, where necessary, an additional thread diagram.
A selection of the spiders is then used in a spider sampler for which a photograph, a lace pricking, a working diagram and explanations are provided. The booklet serves as a reference work for looking up spiders or may be used simply to work the sampler.
