Bobbin Lace Collar (geklöppelter Spitzenkragen)

15 02 2011

Started April 24, 2008, I finished it on May 21, 2008. Here is a  Work-In-Progress photo:

Begonnen 24. April 2008, beendete ich sie am 21. Mai 2008. Hier ist ein Work-In-Progress Foto:


Length (Länge): 87 cm long.

Material : DMC perle coton.

I was so relieved that I was able to finish this lace.  The pattern is from the book “Freude am Klöppeln” (Joy in Bobbinlace) by Barbara Pollak. Here is a photo of the starched and finished collar with the opened book.

Ich war so erleichtert, dass ich diese Spitze beenden konnte. Das Muster ist aus dem Buch “Freude am Klöppeln ”  von Barbara Pollak. Hier ist ein Foto von dem gestärkten und vollendeten  Kragen mit dem Buch.

It is mounted on a foamboard covered with dark velvet fabric.

ES ist auf einem mit dunklen Samt überzogenem Foamboard montiert.

Nice work. If you work collars in linen they hold their shape better than perle cotton.

Thanks Avital! I would also use linen thread if I could, but I am just a forever-student… linen threads are just beyond my budget. lol. ^_^

How gifted you are to be able to do this gorgeous work – and from a book!!

March 2010 a dear friend in Germany gave me my first lesson in bobbin lace and I brought home to the USA an even greater appreciation of each step.

Thank you for sharing!!!
