classic irish crochet laceLast week I had a quick project - a collar made with classic Clones style


And today is time to make a step-by-step photos how it was made. So what I have was a streight dark burgundy dress, slightly resembling a victorian dresses. You know the teens, sometimes they have some cool crazy ideas. And I had to make it more authentical with Clones lace collar. So the main motif was the Irish rose on the wide area of a collar and a buttonies on a neck line.

I took the template of a dress and transferred it to my project cloth, we have ended up with 4 segments in the back and a button fastener The outer edge of a collar is marked with a double line, that part will be taken by crown edging, so that part is not taken into consideration. Just a small note, my edge with size 60 yarn is about 1 cm, so I outcasted it.

the next part of the project was a fillet mesh band. It will be an interlayer between filling and crowns.

Sew in the band, using a stitch that resemles a ladder, over the cell of a mesh.

At this stage I've realised that there are too little elements so I added shamrocks. Note that since I work in Clones lace, I sew in all the motifs face up

now it is time to make a filling with Clones knots, just like it was done 160 years ago

I made two rows until I reach the level of flowers, now the filling is done between the flowers first

now the whole filling is made and attached to the upper fillet band.

And finally I can remove the template cloth anf complete the edge with Crowns, you can find them in Maire Treanor's book of Clones lace. The inner part of a collar is made with plain double crochet set.
