This is a quasiperiodic bobbin lace ground that I designed. It repeats, but not in the usual checkerboard, brick or honeycomb manner. The pattern can go on forever, just like other grounds, but it is never exactly the same. I used a grand Venetian cord stitch to add the yellow accents.

I found the grand Venetian cord in Practical Skills in Bobbin Lace by Bridget Cook.  I would be interested in finding out what kinds of traditional lace styles use this stitch and how. 

I doubled up threads when I wanted the colour to start, by adding a yellow pair, and used magic threads to hide the ends when the colour stopped.   The yellow threads wrap around and almost completely cover the pair of white threads underneath.

It was my first time using the cord stitch so I learned a few things along the way and next time I think I would be able to improve on the appearance.  It is a bit like making a tally so it takes some practice.

The Venetian cord is a very interesting addition.

Thank you all.

Jo, Quasicrystals and quasiperiodic tilings (such as the Penrose Dart and Kite tiling) are directly related to this pattern which is based on the Ammann-Beenker tiling.

Wow.

Can't even find the quasiperodic as such on the Dutch wikipedia. Only related subjects like quasichrystals and certain types of tiling. Inovative and very well exected too.

Very nice.

A single repeat looks like this:

It appears in different rotations and in places one copy overlaps another copy.

The way I decide which of the many patterns to make is based on what I envision when I look at the pattern.  If I can see an interesting flow of threads, I give it a try.  I usually try many different stitches for a single pattern before I get the result I am looking for.

Still trying to identify a single repeat and failing. And still not getting bored looking at it. I know you let a computer calculate designs. What makes you choose the ones you do as bobbin lace and how do you go about it?

The pattern is very original and beautiful. Congratulations!!!
