Iris Handkerchief

I finished it!  Only had a few repeats left so last night I completed the tatting and then attached it to the hanky this morning.  I didn't use the crochet method for this one as the handkerchief was just too fine and I felt the crochet edging would have been too bulky and too firm a treatment in this case.  I used a fine needle and thread and an overcast stitch instead.  It really is a lovely handkerchief and the fabric is so fine it is nearly transparent.  I don't like working with white much but it seemed the best option for this pretty hanky.

The edging (my own pattern) is made in DMC Cordonnet Spécial in size 60.






Best wishes,

  6. Great job! I love white hankies with white edgings. And just saw your way of adding edgings to the hankies by crocheting: great way, will give that a try too!
