I am currently in the process of learning the five-hole ground used in Flanders bobbin lace. However, I can only find information on the ground, not on how to transition from the ground to cloth stitch flowers.

Do you need more pins in the cloth stitch than you use in the ground, and if so, how do you then go back to the ground? Does the cloth stitch need a multiple of four pairs in it, and if not, how do you account for that in the ground?

  • Not an answer, just a bit of advice: Get a pattern for the kind of lace you want to do and follow the full instructions.

  • I'm having trouble finding patterns for this kind of lace (most of what I can find is Torchon and Buck's Point) so I'm trying to figure it out on my own until I can find some
