From the Stitch Description: If the stitches interposed between the diamond motifs of Mrs. Montague’s Pattern are eliminated, the diamonds will abut to form a continuous pattern. This is a very old type of lace. It occurs in many variations, with the diamonds being made either larger or smaller. The version given here, with diamonds five stitches wide, is about average.
