Romanian Crochet part 1

Romanian Crochet, Romanian Macrame, Romanian Point Lace or Romanian Needle Lace; it is all the same.

This weekend I was doing lots of yard work and got a lovely sunburn. I didn't make much lace, so I thought I would show something I did a few years ago. This, obviously, is a baby bonnet. It is not lined, that is just a burgundy ball of thread I put in it to hold its shape for the photo, showing in a side profile and a back profile. The cord (link to how to make cord) is neat; it is crocheted, but the neat part is that in unravels in both directions. This makes it easy to unravel and join the ends to form lace. After you crochet the cord you baste it to a fabric pattern, and then you fill it with needle stitches. I have taught this several times in different stores such as Heindselman's , Stitching Corner in West Jordon, for community education classes and one on one. It makes some of nicest doilies and bodices. I will post more photos of this type of lace tomorrow.

  2. I wasn't making lace in the sun I was pulling weeds for about 6 hours. I wish I was doing lace that would have been more fun. I hope you are well and having a lovely weekend.

  3. * Wow this is beautiful ! *

    I was looking for patterns for this type of thing but not in the real fine thread. I bet this is in the real fine one like the 20 or 30 isn't it?

    I'm after patterns using size 10 crochet thread, would you know where I could find some ?

    Stunning work, I've saved you on my favs.

  4. Actually this is size 5 because I was teaching a class of beginners and I wanted something they could finish quickly so this is actually a very large cord. Usually I would use size 30 for a baby bonnet. Just not in this case.
