Mrs. T. H. Corbett's Shell Lace* instructions are a model

of clarity, and need no translation. In this case "thread over twice" really does mean a double yarn over, and in the 2nd row she even clarifies what to do with that double over.

The results left me a little "meh".

Ok, but not exciting. Maybe with blocking, or in a finer yarn, or a crisp cotton or linen? I started on smaller needles (right side of pic), then changed moved up a size, but that's as much experimenting as I plan to do with this one.
