In this very valuable basic lace, the bias pull of ordinary Lace Trellis is eliminated in the same way as in Vandyke Faggot: a row in which the decreases precede the yo's is alternated with a row in which the decreases follow the yo's. The structure of the lace is therefore much the same as Vandyke Faggot but on a smaller scale. Alone, Vertical Lace Trellis makes a pretty openwork design; in combination with other pattern arrangements it has great versatility; see Lace Check and Cathedral Pattern.
