Venetian square lace, reworked
CROCHET: A wonderfully gothic looking long vest or waistcoat to crochet. This stunning vest/waistcoat pattern is from the late sixties… but before then this motif was usually used for tablecloths etc. The motif is called a “Venetian square” and it has an almost tatted look to it, especially with the lattice work borders and picot loop corners.
Especially if made in white….
…in this supersized large trellis, it looks so unusual; but chose a yarn with lots of body so it stays crisp. Cotton would be good, although the pattern is written for yarn. The motif would also be usable for other projects- fab cushions, pillows, or blankets… or even wall art pieces… just with a variation in the thread used.
