For those who love hand made lace.
Unlike Le Pompe, Nuw Modelbuoch actually gives lacers a clue on how to get started - the number above each pricking tells you how many bobbins to use! It is important to note that it says how many *bobbins*, not how many *pairs*, since the bobbins are not always used as pairs. A few patterns would suggest three strand or 3 pair braid trails, unlike the standard 2 pair.
From Nuw Modelbuoch, 1561.
