Through the years I've seen, and collected, something that nobody seems to
know what it is. The pieces are made from crochet-type thread, which appears
to be some type of knotting, in a pattern of squares. Looks almost like a
netlike balanced weave. Further, it looks like this background is used as a
base for decorative embroidery, often flower-type motifs, from the same
thread. Some areas, often along the edges, are filled in with weaving similar
to a hand-done darning stitch. I've seen doilies, place mats, runners and
Can anyone tell me, from my feeble description, what this might be and where I
might find info (books or ?) which address this method?
