The final edit of the instructions took longer than anticipated, and of course the photos will be replaced since the two panels shown were the first actual tests of a no sew/no graft method for joining the motifs.  Would also like to use actual different colors of thread instead of painting them with Photoshop.  That choice will be made in the next few days.

Finally, the motif is my modification of the center of a Niebling doily found in Lavori Artistici A Calza Nr. 11, Model 66.  There are several other small square Nieblings that I test knitted over the years, and are suitable for similar adaptations.  Perhaps each one will be published on a monthly basis, in part because there are so many other patterns that will distract me from sticking to one topic.  One of the topics is related, as will be seen when I publish the group that for now I am calling “Hannelore And Her Sisters”.  In fact, this post is a call for test knitters for the project. Will also post about it in the coming weeks.
