Workbasket Tablecloth motif

Tablecloth square


I took a break from the house cleaning/organization the other day and found a copy of a Workbasket tatting pattern. I remember who gave it to me (I know surprise, surprise!) and need to remember to thank her the next time I see her. 

Anyway, it intrigued me because the center is so tight. Trefoils of smaller rings all join to each other. It’s another “fabric” pattern with not much negative space in the center. I think it would make a nice tablecloth.



Now, back to our regular schedule housework!

  1. Very pretty ! I like the dense and open combo of this design ! And especially the elongated shape of the 4 side rings

  2. Me too! And it was easier to tat than I thought it would be while reading the pattern.

  3. I agree this motif is very lovely. I'll have to check my Workbasket patterns to see if I have this one.

  4. My copy is a xerox of 2 pages. The date I see is December 1974. I hope that helps.

  6. Square 2 is just about ready to join up. I can't wait to discover the negative space and how the secondary centers show up.

  8. I finished 4 motifs. Tuesday I'll post how I changed the pattern to make it easier to tat. The secondary center turned out quite lovely.
