GroundForge

Choose patterns and stitches to generate diagrams for variations of bobbin lace grounds.

The primary purpose of the diagrams is selecting interesting patterns from a myriad of choices and combinations. Giving different colors to threads reveals how they flow through a pattern. Exact pin positions and how threads are tensioned around them are left to your imagination.
