“Lace by music” is a unique type of lace knitting. Borders or edgings that were made by women in the most remote villages of Portugal. Andre is conducting research and collected examples of this lace from around Portugal for study. This style of lace has the particularity of being all made mostly of purl stitches and for that purpose a special “code” has been created to pass along those patterns from generation to generation. This “code” is the so-called “music” of the lace, and is composed of a series of symbols created by people who didn’t know how to read or write.
