snowflake from Lene Bjorn book 24 Snowflakes in Tatting


I have conquered block tatting! Finally! I’ve tried several patterns with block tatting sections before. They turned out OK, but I knew I wasn’t getting everything quite right. I hate that feeling. You’ve finished a project, it looks fine, but you know it isn’t quite right. This time I think I’ve used the correct stitch count and executed the chains in a much neater manner.

I chose to use colors close to those used by the school we graduated from: University of Michigan. Go Blue!!

  1. Stupendous. SUCH neat block tatting too. Which method did you finally use?

    1. thank you Jane!
      I'm trying to complete the master binder for TAT, so I used the method with the 1DS at the end of each row to turn. It took several tries to get the knack of it.

  2. Great job on the snowflake. Were you able to complete The Fifth Day of December according to the instructions on the pattern? I am stumped. How do I start Round 2 without attaching the 6th chain in Round 1 to the 1st ring in Round 1 without breaking off and re-attaching to the appropriate picot on the previous chain?

    1. Hi Donna-

      I hope you see this. I'm a bit rushed today and don't have an email handy. Let's see....5 Decemeber....The only way I see to start Round 2 is to make the 6th chain of Round 1 a split chain. I chose to cut and tie after finishing Round 1 because I wanted to use a different color. Clear as mud? Email me directly: picotsnkeys@gmail.com
