Lattice Lacing (lug version)

A lug version of Lattice Lacing. This very popular method forms a decorative lattice in the middle of the lacing. The laces are crossed at a steep angle, allowing them to be woven through each other.

Notes

It's easier to do the weaving and get all the "Overs" and "Unders" correct if you firstly lace one end all the way to the top of the shoe. For example, complete the left (blue) end, then weave the right (yellow) end in and out.
