Mistress Barbeta Kyrkeland, Barony of Bergental
I did this for a Laurel’s challenge 5-6 years ago to recreate an Elizabethan accessory. I only had the 5-inch fan-sticks, so it is smaller than than what would have been used at the time (8-inches or more). Also, lace fans were rare, although I found a couple of examples:

I took this pattern from Gillian Dye’s “Insertions & Borders; Sixteenth & Seventeenth Century Lace Book 4”. She based it on the partlet in the Portrait of Anne of Denmark in Mourning attributed to Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger.
I used an unidentified black silk thread, and made a photocopy of the pricking onto heavy cardstock, and worked it on my block pillow. The pattern was difficult for me at my skill level at the time, so a close-up of the finished product will show that it is inconsistent and poorly worked,
with gradual improvement towards the end of the piece.
