Jane Kefford's Tatting/Hairpin Lace Collar

Many thanks to Harriet Sharp for sharing another lace piece tatted by Jane Kefford, a tatter who died at age 92. Here Jan combined a tatted outer edge with a hairpin lace inner lace strip. She gathered up 3-4 hairpin loops with each join to the tatting.

Diagram for the tatted edging in the Kefford collar. Please note that the stitch counts given are a best guess. The three red rings join to one picot but the two blue rings are not joined to that picot; the blue rings join only to the adjacent picots on the red rings. The "+" signs indicates where the repeat joins and where the loops join to the tatting.
