The grounds that appear in the TesseLace index are the result of research by Veronika Irvine and were generated using the TesseLace algorithm. Some of these grounds are familiar, traditional grounds. Others have not been found in known catalogues and are likely new.
In the following tables,
- click on the image to see thread and pair diagrams in GroundForge,
- click on txt to download a template file for use with the bobbin lace plugins for Inkscape,
- click on svg to move intersection positions around.
Families of patterns are variations of the same pattern with modified pin positions. Note: Currently, GroundForge does not support pin positions therefore the thread diagrams for all members of a family look the same.
See note 5 of the sampler by G. Whiting for a few more families of patterns.
Kat or Paris family
The non-traditional grounds have been grouped based on the size of the largest hole in the ground.
