You can actually use a feature of the software to help you find it.  Look at the very top of the screen for a black bar. Near the right edge it has a search slot that only searches through laceioli.  Type in      Pag book.      The software will find every comment that contained both words.  The book author and description of its contents is in the 4th or 5th comment in the list.

Thank you Linda Dumas and Lorelei Halley for your great help :). The drawings of the patterns are wonderful, it really looked if they were printed instead of made by yourself!

I will be searching for the title and so on from the book about Croatian lace. 

The photots of Xiaojie are great!

Re: pattern.  My impression is that many different laces with different elements in different positions can be made on the same basic pattern.  The pattern is just a circular graph.  Each concentric circle has another technical element worked on it.  Look in this album for several of these circular graphs that we have used as patterns.

Re:  If you look through earlier discussions about books, we are aware of 1 book, but it is about lace making in Croatia in a general way, with a little history, and includes bobbin lace and sol lace.  To the knowledge of all of us here there is no instruction or how-to book yet written in any language.  Our member Xiaojie has been teaching us by working a simple lace, and photographing every stage carefully, so we can see what she did.  There are three pieces PAG LACE ONE, PAG LACE TWO, and PAG LACE THREE.  This page has links to the photo albums which contain her instructions:    The first one is covered in very great detail.  Laces Two and Three are only covered in the parts that aren't in Pag Lace One.

If you find the sequence of photos difficult to understand, having a basic grounding in how needle lace is made may help.  Most western European needle lace is held together by a doubled outline cord (called cordonnet, outline threads,) which is couched onto a pattern.  The lace stitches are attached to the outline threads, but never pierce the pattern.  There are 2 tutorials (also on the tutorial page listed above) that explain the basic method.

hi San-draadje, This is not from a book. I drew this up by looking at a completed piece of Pag lace. To my knowledge, there is no book written with the Pag lace technique.

Dear Linda, from which book is this? Is it specially about Pag lace? Or do you if there are books about the technique in English or German? Thank you, Sandra.
