A 19th century lace pattern, described as “Maline Lace”. Malines (or Mechelen in German) is a Belgian town which was famous for its fine bobbin lace. Fine laces were expensive, and this pattern was probably deemed a suitable substitute that the ladies could make themselves in fine cotton thread. Here, I have used it in a narrow, crescent shaped shawl, worked from the bottom up and shaped with short rows.

The pattern has both charts and written instructions.

Ett spetsmönster från artonhundratalet kallat “Malines spets”. Malines (eller Mechelen på tyska) är en belgisk stad som var berömd för sin knypplade spets. Spetsar var dyrt, och detta spetsmönster ansågs troligen vara en lämplig ersättning som damerna själva kunde tillverka av tunn bomullstråd. Här har jag använt det till en smal, halvmåneformad sjal som stickas nerifrån och upp, formad med avkortade varv.

Mönstret har både diagram och skrivna instruktioner.

145 cm bredd, 35 cm mitt bak, 25 cm i ytterkanterna.

Masktäthet
1 rapport spetsmönster (10 m)≈ 6.5 cm,
16.5 m/10 cm i slätstickning, efter blockning.
