1884 lace design: Happy Wanderer

There is an evergreen vine with purple flowers, native to Australia and popular in Victorian gardens, called Hardenbergia violacea, or “Happy Wanderer.”  I have chosen the name for this pattern because the lace looks so complex, but it is only 6 stitches and 8 rows in each pattern repeat!  103 more words
