"What do people do with their Puncetto squares? I don't have anything large enough for an edging or inset. The other day I came upon a bunch of Puncetto samples curling in a box. Any ideas for ways to use them? I'm hesitant to put them into…"

"The actual embroidery over the smocking pleats is very clever. It's blocks of coloured satin stitch that repeat the pattern of the Puncetto inset. You can also see vertical panels of floral embroidery on either side of the Puncetto…"

"It's definitely Puncetto. If you check the book, Manuale del Puncetto Colorato, you'll see that even the colors are the same. The diamonds are the most common pattern for colored puncetto. Judging by its size and the signs of wear, I would…"

"Actually, the knot is a little different from Oya. The Oya knot has the thread going in a figure-8 path. Puncetto is more like a blanket stitch with an extra wrap. I wear multifocals, too, and I swear by the Mageyes. I've used them since I…"

"I use Mageyes when I'm doing cross-stitch on 36-count fabric. They might help you."

Puncetto My first motif

"Well its amazing, I have seen minatures in Bobbin lace but would not even consider to try that small and I so love miniatures. Knowing me I usually try to get away with using as much thread as I can in one go as joining is not my best thing. I have…"

Puncetto My first motif

"No, I have a lot of experience working on miniatures and fine embroidery, so I can manage with my own eyesight for Puncetto. Also, the stitches don't require a lot of precision, once you figure out how much thread to use."

Hi, Onna, the loops are quite tight. It takes some practice to get the loops small, yet big enough that you can stick a needle through them. Keep practicing! When I started my loops were too big. If you try solid areas first, before squares, you'll see the correct tension more easily because it's meant to be quite solid, not open and lacy. Good luck!

I just love your work , Avital. Do you know how to write out patterns for these?

I am curious on the one big square that has 4 squares in it. do you keep the stitches like the large loops in in ascii show or are they actually tighter? are the loops just large to show you where to put the next st.? I tried it loopy and mine was a mess. HELP!! lol

thank you so much ,
