Torchon lacemaking is ideal for the beginner as it is geometric and mistakes are easily corrected.
It can also be used a stepping stone to other forms of lace making.
This manual is intended as a primer for the newcomer or those taking up a class of study.
The book contains information on reading patterns, on mounting lace in a variety of ways, and advice on changing the scale of the lace using different grids and a variety of threads.
Ideas are given for coloured lace and tips on lace design.
A number of projects are included - cake frills and garters, small mats and handkerchiefs, lavender bags and pin cushions.
