Separating the first section from the next to delineate where I start to experiment
I did a little thread diagram to try and show what I was attempting. I had no historical evidence to back up this choice – I just wanted to see if the end result would look better. I sent a copy of this to the local lacemaking laurel, whose brain I was picking, to get her thoughts. Answer I got back was to try it. ‘Just play’.
Things I don’t like about this picot style: leaving the inner bobbin pair alone, while the outer pair twists around the pin leaves an unsightly gap when the pins are removed.
I decided to re-run the cotton piece using demonstrating with the double picot style I used exclusively on pattern 1. I also threw in a simple loop picot to experiment, to see if I liked the difference.
