The patterns featured here will provide plenty of practice in working the basic stitches of bobbin lace. There are three different shapes, and you can find prickings for them, together with instructions for starting and finishing, on a separate page or as a downloadable pdf file. The flower uses two of the shapes, one for the petals — each worked differently — and another for the stalk. However, the shapes can be used in many other ways: click on the arrow buttons to see some examples.
