I decided to go back to taking pictures with my laptop as the background. I think the scans do a great job of showing the tatting, but the colors just don't look as vibrant. Maybe I'll learn how to scan beautiful pictures some day... or maybe I'll just tat. :-)
Would you like the pattern for this one?
size 20 Lizbeth, Christmas Delight #116
two shuttles wound CTM
Pewter Flower from Fire Mountain Gems, stock #H20-9117FY
*Ring: 4 -- 4 + 4 -- 4 (if tatting without the doodad/finding, replace join with a picot); do not reverse work, switch shuttles
Chain 8; reverse work
Ring: 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 (5 picots separated by 2 ds); reverse work
Chain 8; do not reverse work, switch shuttles
Repeat from * 5 times. Remember that on the last center ring, there is no final picot... join to first picot of first ring.
As always, if you find a mistake in the pattern, please let me know so that I can correct it. Enjoy!
