Reticella heartJune 2, 2007 at 2:34 pm | Posted in Lace | 8 Comments
I finally finished up my latest project. This heart measures 10*10 cm. I adapted the pattern from Needle-made Laces, an old pattern book with lots of Reticella patterns. It is made from Anchor Mercer Crochet Cordonnet Nr. 80 in white, with some Cotton perlé Nr. 8 for the cordonnette. Since the perle cotton has a slightly different tone it shows through in places, so for the future I’ll use the Anchor yarn in a different size for the cordonnette, too.
I’m not sure yet what kind of project I’ll do next, but I think it will go in another direction, away from the purely geometric stuff. I’m thinking of some leaves or flowers to turn into a lace motif.
