For those who love hand made lace.
Are ALL Hardanger patterns made on graph paper with a darker line every 10 squares? Or would every five squares be equally acceptable? I can do either one, just wondering whether there is a standard. The only patterns I have so far are from the booklet I learned from and one other book (not an instructional book), so I don't have much to go by. When I made my one pattern years ago, I made it on graph paper with a darker grid line every five lines (probably because that's what I had on hand), and I never noticed before that my other patterns have the dark line every 10 lines.
I do my graphs digitally on Corel. As Hardanger is done in blocks over 4 threads, I usually use a 1/4” graph paper and make one square = 1 block.
In my opinion, the darker line spacing is irrelevant. It’s there for easier counting.
