Rectangular Torchon Bobbin Lace Pattern – Peridot
Peridot is rectangular Torchon Bobbin Lace Pattern designed by Barbara at Mainly Lace. We have called it Peridot to fit in with our collection of patterns themed around gem stones. It also happens to be Barbara’s Birth Stone. This pattern is a rectangle rather than the more usual square shape.
Suitable for lace makers that have a working knowledge of Torchon Lace, but not too difficult. We have used Anchor Lace thread No. 40 for the main colour and DMC Dentelle for the coloured workers in the fans and/or diamonds.
Because of it’s shape the rectangle has to be joined at the central pin holes by using a lace making sewing, this is slightly different to the squares.
This design can be worked in 2 different ways and we include both designs for the same price as our other patterns.
