Shanghai Gesture

In 2021/22 i have explored ways to preserve the airy feel of the lace while building it up in layers. The Picot lift stitch invention i created has made it possible to double layers of lace and behold a space in-between the layers while staying solid.

The “picots” (the loops that connect the knotted rings together) are now lifted and supported to stand up straight, allowing a connection on top instead of traditionally used sideways.
