A Lace Endented

The only difference between this braid and "A broad lace" [t2] is that C is taken through two loops rather than one, turning a flat braid into a round cord.

This braid and "A lace bastonne" [t6] are color variations of "A lace common round" [t3]. All three are worked the same way.



Take five loops in two colors, and place them on the following fingers:
Color 1: A C left, and B right
Color 2: B left and C right


Work with the right hand:
A goes through B C right, and takes the loop on C left reversed.
Lower the left loops.

Work with the left hand:
A goes through B C left, and takes the loop on C right reversed.
Lower the right loops.

Repeat from the beginning.
