Triangle complete

First off, thank you Jennifer Williams for doing the grunt work to bring this pattern to life. Her diagram and concise explanation of the path to tat was a huge help to me. 
Frauberger fig. 64
This is the first time I've tatted a pattern starting at the edge and going towards the center with each round. I was nervous that the edges might begin to curl or ruffle. But, so far, so good!

    1. I seem to be drawn to square and rectangular shapes. Inconvenient when tatting tends to be rings and chains that lay in an arc!

    1. I've enjoyed plotting which part of the thread to start each round with. I was pleased with how the colors pooled overall.

  5. Love the triangle & colourway !!!
    Attach more & make a triangular scarf/shawl perhaps ?
    Or how about a vintage-looking lacy corner for a table cloth ?

    1. A table cloth....well....that could be interesting. We're finding small tables for use throughout the house. Perhaps....
      As for the main dining table, I no longer use the rectangular tables. I was tired of bruises on my hips and thighs. I will need to make a custom table cloth for the "new" table though. Maybe an insertion where the centerpiece could be.
