|This is a straight lace to sew to the top of a fabric garment, such as a tank top or other clothing fashions. There's also a chart for making crocheted shoulder straps to match, if desired.|
Sample shows a skinny satin ribbon (size 1/16 or 1/8 inch ribbon) woven through the top row of open mesh (optional).
Sample above is shown finished with a simple picot edging (optional), worked along sides of the piece, such as (2 sc around sides of a double crochet, picot) repeated across. Picot is done by crocheting a chain 4, then doing a slip stitch in base of chain-4 just made. You can vary the number of single crochet stitches between each picot and can also vary the number of chains used to make the picots, to get just the effect you want.
Yoke (21 mesh across) For a 4 dc mesh: starting the chart from the bottom (working it in the short rows), starting chain is 69 (includes ch-3 for first dc and the ch-2 of first open mesh). Work first dc in 9th chain from the hook (first open mesh made).
Strap (11 mesh across) For a 4 dc mesh: starting the chart from the bottom (working it in the short rows), starting chain is 39 (includes ch-3 for first dc and the ch-2 of first open mesh). Work first dc in 9th chain from the hook (first open mesh made).
For narrower yoke or straps, use a 3 dc mesh and/or a thinner thread. See link below for figuring the starting chain for a 3 dc mesh. You can add or subtract open mesh rows on both sides of each piece to make the yoke or straps come out to the size you want.
Charts are from an issue of Star Needlework Journal, published in the year 1919.
