In my previous post, LINK I showed how to weave a 2 inch/5 cm diameter Teneriffe lace motif on an upcycled loom.
The antique Teneriffe lace loom that my sister gave me has a smaller diameter set of holes that makes a motif that is 1 5/8 inches/4 cm in diameter.
At first, I thought… 2 inches is so small, why would you want to go smaller?
But then, I realized, that depending on the finished piece that will be combining lots of Teneriffe lace motifs, having smaller sized ones could be good. There may be spaces that need filling.
And, then I thought… What if I make the smaller one, and make it ~really~ quick and easy so that someone who might be uncertain about trying Teneriffe lace would be willing to give it a try?
Here’s the smaller version of the loom: When you print it out, try to get the circle of holes to come out at about 1 5/8 inches or 4 cm.
You’ll need 48 pins.
I’ve marked the pins that the first loop goes on- one more thing to make it quick and easy 🙂
I’ve made a video showing how to make the Smaller, Faster, Easiest Teneriffe Lace motif.
I hope that you’ll enjoy making Teneriffe Lace! Happy Lace Making!
