Snowflake #4 without the doodad ~ Pattern included

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!


  1. Actually, the scans are much clearer and more vivid when I print them than this photo!
    I am loving this series of snowflakes - many thanks again, for sharing your designs

  2. Thanks for these patterns Diane, I really appreciate them. I got my doodads today. so in between Jan's Tat-along and the other 2 doilies I want to finish, I will be tatting Christmas presents of snowflakes with doodads.

  3. They are great, thank you again for sharing these little patterns

  4. Loving all the 'Doodadmania' that's been going on around here lately. You are quite the trend starter, Diane! Time to blow the dust off the shuttles and attempt some of these patterns myself. :)


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
