This is one-eighth of a Niebling lace pattern called "Magnolie" knitted in grubby garden string, the kind of thing you use to mark rows or let pea vines climb, and Susan Bates Quicksilver US size 1 (2.25 mm) needles.
(And when I say "grubby", I mean I bought the cone with dark oily stains on the bottom out of a dusty, cobwebby garden shed.)
Herbert Niebling designs have eaten my brain. I want them all, even if they take the rest of my life to knit. They've introduced me to the wonderful hex mesh ground. Look at all the possible angles!
(I'll be lucky if my husband doesn't see this - with his many Squad Leader game boards, he'd probably want a hex scarf. Knitted in camo colors.)
Oh, no! A Niebling doily called "Fantasie d'Automne". Eight plump juicy pears on hex mesh ground.
