N-pair stars

August 31, 2014 at 8:54 pm | Posted in English | 2 Comments

Two previous posts where about a three pair star. The French call it the “fond Malin”, dentelle-et-papillon shows two methods. Somewhere I saw online instructions for four, six and eight pairs. Now I can only find this example of eight pairs. Anyone who knows to locate the instructions?

PS: Ulrike Löhr has examples in her book Handbuch mit 400 Tricks und Kniffen.

  1. I’d love to know how to do this star. There is a youtube video of a ten-pair version:
    but I can’t quite follow what’s happening in the second half. Maybe someone here could interpret?

  2. I never got past three pairs. You may have more success at http://laceioli.ning.com/ or http://www.mail-archive.com/lace@arachne.com/ instructions for the latter at http://www.arachne.com/lace/list_instructions.html

    Ulrike Löhr’s “Handbuch mit 400 Tricks und kniffen” also has an explanation.
