I bought a vintage tablecloth and it was labeled crochet. It think the label is wrong and the cloth is tatting. Can anyone help me with this I D? thanks in advance.
Looks like some kind of needle lace - on netting, actually (hand made netting). What are the proportions? I'd say it's something like a filet guipere technique (weaving and a variety of stitches, including needle-lace type stitches) on a hand0made netted ground of some sort.
