Netting without a mesh stick

Most of the time when you net, a mesh stick is used to create uniform-sized meshes.  There are a few times, though, when the mesh stick needs to be discarded, eliminated, not used.  This technique is one of the skills taught in “Netting, More or Less,” the class I’m currently preparing.

In the video below, I discuss those times when I don’t use a mesh stick.  Are there other situations when a mesh stick is not used?


    • Tony,

      Using my finger as a gauge sounds like something I should try sometime. Since most of my work has been making doilies and other small mesh items, my fingers are too large and the lacemakers method has most of the left-hand fingers already busy. Your comments are stretching my mind in ways it had not considered before. Thanks.
