No, I did not reduce the pattern at all - it is its original size.

Hi Lynette, Did you reduce the size of the pattern to use the size 80 thread? If so, about how much? Thanks!

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!

Oh. Ok. Thanks for the info. :)

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.

Gorgeous! Would you call this "point plat" style? Love it.
