Information

Duchesse and Rosaline

Includes 18th and 19th century Brussels lace. Duchesse bobbin lace is a 19th century derivation of older and more complex Brussels laces.  Some Duchesse (often called Brussels Duchesse) contains insets of point de gaze needle lace.  Rosaline is an offshoot of Duchesse, and uses winkiepin edge, and often has needlemade rings appliqued to flower centers.

Your description sounds more like Honiton working methods than Duchesse.  As far as I know (one workshop and 4 books) Duchesse does wind bobbins in pairs.  Wind one bobbin full.  Then wind off onto the 2nd bobbin only as much thread as you think you will need for that particular motif.  Remember Duchesse is a part lace. And each flower and leaf may be a discrete unit, with the units held together by sewings (joins) made with a crochet hook.

In Honiton they knot single bobbins together, then wind the knot onto one of the bobbins, hoping it won't turn up in the motif you are working on.  If it does, they loop the thread with knot on a higher-up pin already set in the work.  Those knotty loops are cut off at the end.

Duchesse hangs on it pairs, sometimes single pairs, sometimes 2 at a time.  When adding 2 pairs per pin at the margin of a motif, Duchesse uses the same complex weave in the clothwork that is used in Binche and Valenciennes laces.

These are the most common hang-on methods in Duchesse.  There are others for hanging on in half stitch.

Honiton usually adds pairs only at the margins of the motifs, and hangs the new pair on the weaver, mostly.

I read somewhere online that the bobbins for Duchesse are filled completely with thread, and then the thread is cut because it isn't necessary to wind bobbin pairs together. How does that work? How do you add new bobbins as you need them? Thanks!

It is a lovely pattern and it could certainly worked in Duchesse technique.  There is no gimp and the braid is worked in only 7 pairs, suggesting the thread is to thick for the pattern.  That said, I think the lace looks beautiful.  

Thank you for the link, I had a lovely time looking at lace.
