The large holes appear to have 3 or 4 skipped stitches.
Yes, that is correct. As far as I know you can skip as many as you like, and then catch up the number in the later row! If you are doing the corded stitch - Whip into each stitch, though - or you will have a straight return thread laying there, - or, alternatively, - if you collect the straight return thread with the following row of stitches, you have it showing a tiny bit either side of the hole, - so it is not a nice clean hole.
Wow! That was fast! Thank you so much!
I can see the stitch details so much better with these new close-ups. I'm still having trouble getting my head around how this pattern actually works. Usually this sort of thing is easy for me, so it's been frustrating. I'll post photos when I have something presentable to photograph :-D . --- Just in case someone else can use the info.
Now to only find some time ....
I added some new pictures some details of the lace you asked for.
It is very hard to get a real good close-up but I hope this will help, if not just let me know, then I have to get the camera in a different set up.
