Partial Daffodil

I received an e-mail from American School of Needlework with an errata sheet for the Daffodil Doily from Learn to Tat by Janette Baker. I followed their corrections without question, because I know that I often read patterns incorrectly. My mistakes are usually operator errors! This is a picture of the doily through Round 3. The directions for Round 4 are still wrong. So, I'm going to tat another one using the corrections I listed in my Feb. 1 post. ASN is supposed to e-mail me with a new errata sheet once they finish reworking the whole pattern. I should have just trusted my instincts and done my own thing. I'd have another finished Daffodil Doily by now!

Still, I think this looks very pretty as it is, so I'm going to leave it be and count it as #9 of the 25 Motif Challenge. It's in size 20 Manuela and measures about 4" across.


  1. Very pretty yellow daffodil. Go with those instincts!

  2. Well, what you've done so far looks like a pretty yellow coaster! I can't tell from the photo what size it really is, so I could be WAYYYY off on that, LOL! It might be a GIGANTIC coaster or a little teeny tiny one, LOL!

    Good for you you figuring out the pattern on your own. That is impressive. :)

  3. How rewarding to be able to adapt on the fly when tatting. May I ask, how does one get erratas from the publisher; when one has purchased their book? Just curious. Because of sharing, I did get the errata from Jan S. book last year.
    It is a really pretty pattern and I was considering it since I finished the Valentine...but...I don't know if I could pull it off by 'compensating' LOL

  4. That is so pretty! I love the bright gold color!

  5. Bright and happy! Come on, spring!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
