This pattern is designed to celebrate Swimathon 2020, a charity swim to raise money for Cancer Research and Marie Curie nurses. £5 of every pattern sale will be donated to this in sponsorship of Louise's efforts swimming 20k (800 lengths of a 25m pool) by the end of October 2020.
The pattern is inspired by the movement through water, the splashes, waves, bubbles, dancing light patterns and the overhead flags . It uses floral Bedfordshire techniques, with the flags inspiration being taken from a 19th century Thomas Lester design. It incorporates coloured worker pairs, using a range of available variegated threads to give depth to the water.
This product is for the pattern sheet and the ready to work pattern, with all the pattern preparation done for you.
"Ready to Work" is a pattern that is printed onto pricking card and the holes made in it by a computer controlled laser process, ensuring an accurate pattern. This process also saves time, meaning you can get on to the making of the lace much quicker.
