I'm working through Discover Torchon, the first book in the 3-book series by Ulrike Voelcker. In exercise 5.2 the color-coded stitch diagram shows yellow at the base of the fan.

According to the key at the beginning of the book, yellow is "reserved for special actions with single threads, e.g., gimps, picots or tallies." But the exercise instructions do not mention using a gimp. The photo of the sample does not show a picot nor a tally.

What do you do at the base of the fan? --a twist? --nor is there an indication on the pricking of placing a pin to anchor a stitch...

I have put all 3 'books' into 1 so can you tell me what page number you are looking at?

Found it! It is on page 50

The yellow seems to indicate that the fan has a 'french fan' top on the extended fan - although it is the first time I have seen it worked in half stitch. It is quite spectacular and I will have to give it a go at some stage.

... so, how do I do the stitch designated in yellow (e.g., CT)?

You must do CTCT as you change the guid to follow the piece.

So just CTCT and pin, and then go up

Have a good lace!
