Daisy Edging - Laser Cut Pricking
Pattern 10 from Louise West's book "Bedfordshire Lace Designs".
Requires approximately 70 pairs of bobbins, which are used and thrown out regularly through the flowers. Incorporates the technique of overlaid leaf tallies on top of the half stitch giving a 3-dimensional element to the flowers.
This pattern is a "ready to work" laser cut version. An A5 coloured postcard of the finished item is also included but does not include working instructions - these are available in the book mentioned above though at this stage it is anticipated that more decisions are taken by the lacemaker.
Two pattern pieces are provided to enable you to work the full square.
The "ready to work" option provides an incredibly accurate pricking complete with all markings. Absolutely nothing to do apart from putting it on your pillow and making the lace. Definitely saves a huge amount of time - this pattern (2 pattern pieces) has 6248 pre-pricked holes!
The lace shown in the photograph has been worked in Finca 60 thread.
