I've posted a few bracelets before, but as pretty as the lace is, I haven't loved the look of it for the veil. Here's my previous post.
And here are the new patterns I've worked up:
|Similar to the lace I did last time. |
|I wanted to keep it simple, but I like the more romantic look of a shell pattern.|
|I went for something wider, and I really liked it.|
Wide Scallop Pattern
|This is probably my favorite. It has the shell pattern, but it is more of a "lacy" look than pattern #73.|
So I've had several people tell me that they like the simpler edging. I can see that it would have more versatility. However, they are both worked into the base chain long-ways. Meaning I would chain 17' and then work 17' of sc into that base chain. If you've ever done base-chain work with lace, you know you can only do a limited amount in a sitting before your fingers are in agony. The larger two pieces have a short base-chain, and are then worked one motif at a time, across. This would be a bit easier on my hands. Also, I feel like if I'm going to spend approximately 80 hours working into the base chain (based on some preliminary calculations) that I would want the lace to be pretty damn impressive.
Ok, folks, what do YOU think?
