Although the patterns here are taken straight from rubbings of the original parchments, they have a wonderful feel of being connected to the workers who originally used them.
The final pricking #25 'oak' flounce, is the same pattern as shown in plate 17 of Thomas Wrights, Romance of the Lace Pillow.
No instructions on how to work the lace is included with the prickings so a knowledge of lacemaking and the styles included is needed.
Patterns cover both Bedfordshire and Bucks Point lace
