Stretched Paris ground
These examples came to life as variations on a rose-ground with “do nothing (much)” on the left and right. Please see the resemblance with the Paris ground.
Rose ground in a diamond
By putting the traditional rose ground unit in a diamond, little stars can be made.
Please note: when making the actual lace, it will make a big difference if the unit in the middle is made torchon-style or flemish-style, as the picture illustrates. Example 1 looks like a star.
The ground on the right can also be obtain as a Droste on Paris ground
Take a non-symmetrical rose ground unit, move one of the pins to the middle, and place this unit in alternating directions. Please note, the generated thread diagram displays the moved pin in the original position.
