Honiton lace sprig of circles and hexagons

In 2012 The Devon Lace Teachers published this six circle Honiton lace sprig in 'Honiton Lace a collection of rediscovered fillings'. Christine Hawken was a talented maker, teacher and researcher. This and another book of her patterns were sold in her memory with all proceeds given to HospiceCare. When The Devon Lace Teachers dissolved in 2023 they gave Christine's collection to RAMM.

This sprig includes the following fillings: rib and leadworks, whole stitch block five pin variation, diamond variation 3, single snowflake and half stitch diamond, half stitch plaits with pins, braids with leadworks, and four purl blocks and leadworks.
