The lace pattern was very loosely adapted from a pattern in the
Encyclopedia of Needlework by Thérèse de Dillmont.

Just in case you don’t have a skein of yarn in your stash which is probably at least 32 years old, I looked up some other yarns that would work as substitutes. To find out how much you would need, I knit up one repeat of the lace pattern, tore it out, and wound it up on my trusty niddy-noddy. It came out to 9.75 yards, or 8.9 meters. For the twelve repeats of the pattern I made, you would therefore need about 117 yards or 107 meters of yarn.

My Ravelry search for yarns turned up 6 pages of yarn options, but I’ll share with you just the four most used. Of course, you may use whatever suits your needs. Each of these yarns would require one skein or less for this project: Royale Classic Crochet Thread, Size 10, by J&P Coats; Crochet Thread Size 10 by South Maid; Eldorado by Coats and Handicrafter Crochet Cotton, Size 10, by Bernat.

The website that previously hosted this has dropped all of my old patterns. They are currently unavailable, but I may reissue them at another time.
