No, I did not reduce the pattern at all - it is its original size.
OH! I'd love to do something like this! This 2013 have to be the year! Thank you, Lynette. Your work is so motivator.
Hi Liz - you can purchase this thread in larger balls too in Ecru & White 20gram balls about the size of crochet cotton balls. Phone around & see what you can get.
Thanks Lynette. I have some of that (in the small balls) and have used it for Reticella, but only in colour. I haven't noticed it is white. Yes it is nice to work with.
I checked the Fiori book I have and they show a photo of a ball of DMC 100 crochet cotton, and a hank/skein of DMC Broder special 35 (all I can make out on the label) so I wondered what you had used.
Hi Liz, the thread used is DMC Special Dentelles size 80. A very smooth cotton thread like crochet thread but quite fine & smooth to use.
What thread do you use for your Aemalia Ars work, Lynette? It always looks so clean cut and crisp. It must be a smooth thread without whiskers!
No, it's aemilia ars Italian lace peculiar to the region in Italy where it came from. It nearly died out but for a few far seeing Italian ladies who set up a school for it & it exists to this day. Not many people do it hence the reason you may not have seen it before. I really enjoy it.
