Mailander Spitze

Received a late birthday/Christmas present, “Mailander Spitze” by Barbara Corbet published by Barbara Fay Verlag only this year.  The instructions are comprehensive and the patterns delightful. 

“Different techniques are used to work the scroll in different types of lace.  This element is found  in the Flemish variant of Milanese lace and is called in Flemish, krul”.  It is different again from the scroll described in”Mailander Spitze, a modern interpretation” by Christine Mirecki (2009), shown in the green worked example below.
