Lorelei, halas lace is All needlelace. The cloth like areas are needle made - just straight darning! This is the hard part, - getting it to look like fabric.
The trace thread is a thicker cord, which is not buttonhole stitched afterwards, but left as is. The lace is made Wrong-side up.
I haven't made any, - yet! - but I have read the books about it!

That Halas link is very interesting. I have always wondered just what distinguished Halas needle lace. It appears to be insets into woven cloth, with very little cloth left. Each piece is 80% or more needle lace.

I found photos of an Italian exhibition of lace on fiore tombolo. Unfortunately, none of the photos are close up. There are some bibila/bebilla, and one of aemilia ars in process.

I would like to point out that some time ago I found a web site showing how to couch down threads for a reticella square, (I think it was). It showed the Trace thread linking into the side - but only into the Couching stitch, not into the trace thread already laid. this was a nice clear diagram - but SO wrong. When the couching stitches were cut and removed, the lace would fall to pieces, as the trace threads were not linked together. So Please, everyone, link your Trace threads to other Trace threads, Not the couching thread.

Following up on a suggestion I went to
http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/books.html. There are 2 books available as pdf downloads which contain patterns/photos of simple geometric laces which might be used as beginners patterns for basic needlelace or aemilia ars.
Hardouin ALBUM DE DENTELLE DE VENISE
Cleofe Mingarelli Ricci DISEGNI DI TRAFORI I PUNTO IN ARIA

Both have a lot of possible beginners patterns.

Hi Everybody
To start I'll post 2 pages from my website: the 1st one describes the working method in general.
http://lynxlace.com/needlelace%20introduction.html
The next one gives the overall strategy, but also has a list of links, near the end, to online tutorials, and many of them are very good.
