…By the spring’s enlivening, lovely look;
The valley’s green with joys of hope;
The winter old and weak ascends;
Back to the rugged mountain slope”.*

Feminine beauty, adorned in exquisite lace, is even more beautiful and enchanting than the babbling brooks, the first rays of the sun and the opening buds of Nature described in Goethe’s famous Easter Walk poem. The following pattern examples are designed to awaken a real feeling of spring. The eye-catching, full-width fabric, with its modern, geometric, arching design in shades of silver and blue shown in Figure 1, evokes a feeling of waves, water and the sheer exuberance of Life. This lace was worked on a JL 40F in the crosswise direction. It has a Leavers-like pattern in the ground, which was produced by the split jacquard bars working a counter notation. This requires two separate beams to be drawn-in separately. The sweeping, wavy stripes of the JL pattern are joined by pillar stitches, which can be used as separating points. The clever design enables bordered fabrics with attractive edges to be produced as well as bands. In both cases, the fabric is extremely dimensionally stable and the polyamide yarns produce a soft handle – giving an extra touch of style to women’s outerwear in particular.
