Frivolité edgings, käpypitsireunuksia

Kolme reunapitsiä
More lace edgings – tatted this time. All three are made with the same pattern. The largest, black lace with thick cotton yarn and a needle.

R 5-5-5-5 rw, CH 5-5rw, R 5+5-5-5rw, CH 5-5 rw, R 5+5-5-5, CH 6 rw, R 8+3-6-3, R 3+6-3-3-6-3, R 3+6-3-8 rw, CH 6, R 5+5-5-5rw, CH 5+5
