How to Crochet the Osiris Lace

Original design by your very own Elizabeth Martin. I have named this as the Osiris lace inspired by the Osiride Pillars that can be found in Egypt. The Osiride Pillars are statues with their arms crossed erected inline at the entrance of an ancient temple

Let’s get started

The Osiris Lace is composed of 3 row repeat.

  • The first row is a strong base of single crochet all the way across
  • The second row which is the main pattern that somehow construct an image of the Osiride pillars. The stitches has a flat crossed treble stitch that represents the statue sandwich by a treble crochet on each side which form as a pillar entrance to the temple.
  • The third row is a series of double crochet stitches to strengthen the pattern

All together, the pattern creates a strong lace look which is ideal in shawls with buttons, afghan and other blankets.

Stitch Standards

I am using the US/International Standard Crochet Terms

Foundation Chains

This stitch requires a multiple of 6 + 5 + 1 for the base chain
Example: If you are to make 30 stitches, add another 5 chains, and 1 extra for the base, giving you a total of 36 chains.
Stitch count matters.
