Follow the links above for explanation of how to work the different parts of the lace.

There are some grey lines joining different parts of the pattern, such as the zigzag and the scallop. The pairs need to be twisted between the pins. Sometimes this happens naturally as they leave the previous shape. But if not, give them an extra twist.

This pattern begins and ends with a stitch or two of Torchon ground to make a neat start and finish.
