I crochet as well but i really enjoy doing needlework..

This reminded me That I've been wanting to ask if anyone has managed to document crochet before the late 1700s. A while back I read that it was the earliest so far.
I would love to reproduce some of the old lacis patterns but I have yet to figure out how to make the net. The modern net I've seen has round not square holes and is nylon so I don't think it would work.
Many of them can be done in filet crochet (which I enjoy) but apparently it is just somewhat out of period. Like nearly 200 years. sigh
Does anyone know anything different?
