Yes, Charlotte, that's what I thought of at first too, but couldn't quite get how the weaving would work. Then someone suggested in one of the replies on this thread that it might be hairpin lace so I googled that and sure enough, I found a whole tutorial on exactly this method! It looks pretty cool, and something I want to try, just so I can say I did it!
