Sorry this was so long in the posting. My children who help me do some of this had finals and reports to do at school and that took president but it is here now and please enjoy. The collar as it prints from your computer will work as a baby to toddler size yoke or you can use it as a child to preteen collar. If you want it to fit an adult blow it up to the measurements on the sides of the print outs then it will be adult size.

But you can make them now and have them ready for next year or make them and use them this year as Christmas ornaments or just a doily in your home. links below where to download the patterns.

Notice the new header. That is a hint of some of the future RPLAL that will happen this year. I see January, February, June, October and November and just some I am doing for me and not the tutorials. There are others for those months that I have not shown yet but the entire year is planned. I may add more as the year goes on but this is how i t stands so far.
I am hoping having this be the first post of the first month in 2012 will make it easy for people to find it for future reference.
This is the main post for the series of tutorial I will be doing all year long. I will update it after every new post and add the links. And there will be photos added so you can have a visual reference on the right side of the post of what each project looks like.
- RPL: Romanian Point Lace
- RPLAL: Romanian Point Lace along meaning a lot of people are working on this at the same time and there are forums to ask your questions on as well as here
- solid: no fabric in the middle all filling stitches and cord.
- tile: means it is square probably and will work well for making larger items by making many of them and tiling them together like granny squares
If I do not write solid on a doily it means it has a fabric center for you to embroider on and I will not be going over that area as that is for you to decide what you want to do there. Here is the list for the next 12 months and what will be taught.

My family has decided to make a few ornaments for the holidays. My oldest daughter and I have drafted patterns together again to be able to share with my blog readers so if you would like to join my family in making ornaments please do and add your finished work to the RPL group on flicker or ravelry.

Romanian point lace, battenberg (battenburg) lace and Irish crochet lace all traditionally use rings in the lace. I am going to show a few ways of making these rings. There are 5 examples in this tutorial. This will help those in the Jan 2012 RPLA on Ravelry and of course any one else who wants to learn this like those in the flickr group. I will have another tutorial later with 2 more ways of making rings
