OH LITTLE STAR LACE:


Follow instructions for Oh Little Star for first motif.




On the next motif, instead of making the second picot and after ch 3, sl st into any picot on first motif, and then finish second motif.

When the lace is as long as you want or need for your project, attach thread to first upper un-worked picot on the motif to your left,




Row 1: ch 1, sc in same st, *ch 12, sc in upper un-worked picot on next motif, repeat from * across, ending with sc in last picot, end with ch 12 and join to beg sc if putting lace on something like a sleeve or bottom of a blouse etc.
