There seem to be quite a few different styles of braid making under the title "Cantu". I know that I have seen this style in some Cantu books. The edging I am making has the more characteristic curls and flowers. I know that a style of braid called "mimosa" is also under the Cantu label. I am not an expert on this style of lace as I have only just begun to make it.

Nice. It looks like pure tape lace. Your pattern doesn't have the curls that one thinks of as Cantu.

I have been meaning to learn this form ever since I first saw it back in the 1980s. Still haven't gotten around to it. If you have any pieces completed, post photos so we can see.

I like this style of lace making because of the few bobbins to keep track of and it is the first time I have used hands up to make lace. The sound of the bobbins is great therapy for me when I am tense.

Seeing how the group picture is a piece of my work, I guess I should join the group!  On the whole I like to work laces with limited numbers of bobbins.  This was a fun piece to make, must have been 15 years ago.  I only made half the doily.  

I practically got hysterical when I found out that the stems are just stabbed into place to keep them from wiggling.  An amazingly freeing method of working.
