I have been contacted by a Dutch lacemaker who asked me what "punto de ajedrez" and "punto monja" are. They are grounds, and from their names, Spanish. I haven't heard of either of them. She gave a YouTube video of "punto de ajedrez" (which means, I guess, checkerboard ground) and it looks like a rose ground but the centre filled in with cloth stitch. (The video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RFC5RX7zUs for anyone who's interested - but it's in Spanish!)

But I can't find anything about ''punto monja". "monja" means nun. Anyone got any ideas?

I'm sorry if this isn't a fit subject for a beginner's forum. But I'm a beginner in Spanish lace! (As in, I haven't even started yet...)

Actually I think there are several grounds in Grunde mit System that are very similar to chequerboard:

Here are the instructions for three of them:

In diamond, pins are on the inside of the corners.

1,2: TCT
3: C-P-TC
4,5,6: CT-P-C 

3014:

1,2: C-P-TCT
3: C-P-TC
4,5,6: CT-P-C

3019:

1,2: TTC-P-TTC
3: C-P-TC
4,5,6: CT-P-C

The instructions are in German so I hope I have translated them correctly.
