Scallop Lace from "The Ladies' Guide to Elegant Lace Patterns, Etc."

Scallop edged eyelet lace knit from a Victorian era knitting pattern

The sample was knit with size 10 perle cotton and 2.25mm needles and measures 5¾ cm/2¼" wide

When washed, this lace naturally falls into points. If you would like it to remain rounded you will need to gently reshape each point back into the scallop shape when blocking.
