As long as both your hands are free to work the stitches, you will be fine. I find for myself that I can not hold with one hand and stitch with the other. Only when I'm couching on the base. For the rest, I need both hands.
I have started. My pattern is a lot smaller. I think I can manage without using the pillow.
Thank you for doing all the extraordinary things so to show us the stitches.
The design is approx 11.5". the pillow that I will attach it to is:
This weighted 6 lb. pillow is designed especially for use with Honiton Bobbins to make Honiton Lace. It is 13" in diameter and 5 1/5" tall and can be used on both sides.
The tacking thread is Cebelia size 10. the yarn here is Tahki Cotton Classic 100% mercerised cotton gauge is 5 sts 1"/2.5cm
You will see when I attach it to the pillow I have. it will lay better on that pillow with the part cut out. stay tuned for the picture.
Is there a reason that you cut the edge of the circle that way?
As you can see, the pattern is quite large. I photocopied it to the correct size, backed it with card stock paper, and put blue film on the top.
Then with cotton yarn I began. It is 4 threads around for each circle. Please follow the tack drawing chart in the Pag first project charts album.
