Don't know, but it sure is beautiful.

That looks intriguing, hope it gets figured out. It looks somewhat like spider lace (from Victorian Lace) but I don't think it is. I might also have seen something like it in a Japanese pattern book, if I have time tonight I will have a look.

In my FO's at Flicker there is an orange mohair sweater from the 70's with a very similar pattern. I'll try to find the pattern but that's an awful long time ago. It has those starburst-like knots in it, but less well defined.

Lace background stitch?

What do you think?

I don't think it's lace background stitch, but it's close. I looked in an Estonian lace book that I have and I couldn't find it there either. I think it's closer to, but again, not a perfect match to "Starlight Lace" in Barbara Walker #2.

top left in the picture below. Definitely not as airy as the one in the original question posted. I'd love to know what it is!

I know this is going to sound ridiculous, but I think the original sample had an open center in each motif, and the starlight lace has a glob of some sort in the center. Isn't that nice and official-sounding?

suceveanca, perhaps the seller would tell you the name of the pattern in whatever language she knows? It would be another clue, at least.

thank you all. i wonder if it is a modified version of starlight. the lady did say it was an estonian lace stitch. she is from lithuania, but it's possible she did not want to share the actual name of the stitch.
