The Online Tatting Class featured "Sonnenschein" from Happy Occhi by Petra Tornack-Zimmerman. This is a beautiful little pattern that I totally messed up!
First, I didn't follow the pattern. I looked at the diagram and thought... oh, I get this! When I was well into the design, I looked at the beginning of the pattern and saw that I was supposed to start with a chain. Oops! I started with a ring!
I'm not sure if that mistake led to the angular chains or not, but I know that I will re-tat this piece following the directions! I hope my second attempt looks more like Petra's sample!
The thread is size 20 Lizbeth, Pineapple Parfait #170.
Georgia posted that this book will be available in English. Frivole, did you see that it's a book of square motifs? Right up your alley!
