Knitted Lace and Lace Knitting

Knitted lace can be made into clothing, veils and shawls, tablecloths.  And it can use very fine yarns.  I've heard that “lace knitting” is patterned on one side, and plain knitting on all the reverse rows; whereas “knitted lace” has pattern on all the rows.

As far as I can tell, Armenian knotted lace is always made in rounds. The exception is when it makes little flower and leaf shapes as an edging. Your piece is straight rows.

Knitted lace would have loops, as all knitting does. Compare:

Yes, I'm fairly sure it is Armenian lace ( or something very similar to that).  I've just never tried making it!  Good luck!

I would suggest you look at some of the videos on Armenian lace before you try macrame eg http://www.instructables.com/id/Armenian-Knotted-Lace/  or the ones on YouTube

Sue-

I am browsing Armenian Lace Patterns now and it looks very similar.  I'll keep browsing and read how to do this needlework and give it a try.

Thank you....

Ladies-

     Thank you so much for trying to identify this lace pattern.  With everyone so far not being able to pin point what this is good in the sense that it helps me to rule out many possibilities.  I am going to try with macrame....at least the diamond part and worry about the bottom fringe when I get that far.  My idea probably won't work....but I will give it a try.

Thank you again,

Karen Spencer

I am no expert on macrame, but usually there is a fringe at the bottom or somewhere because it is worked with many threads. The usual way of finishing them is to leave them as a fringe.

I think it is probably Armenian lace, but I'm no expert at that.   It is certainly not knitted or bobbin lace

Comment by Heather Bogart on February 6, 2018 at 9:13pm

Sorry Karen, that is absolutely not knitted. The macrame guess is pretty good, as it looks knotted or netted and then embroidered on top.

Hi Ladies-

    This is Karen Spencer writing and I am repairing hopefully the trim on a friends tablecloth that was made many, many years ago....does anyone think this could be knitted lace, or lace knitting?  So far with the group in "Identifying lace" they have said they don't believe it is bobbin lace, or tatting.  Possibly macrame.  Just thought I'd ask about these other 2 possibilities.  More pics are shown in the Lace Identification group.

Thank you,
