As stated in the previous post, this is a classic vintage edging which is no longer under copyright. Versions of it can be found in online needlework and tatting archives and elsewhere. Therefore I feel it now belongs to all tatters, for everyone to have pleasure in tatting it. I am providing you with a version of it with my stitch count, the one I am using now to make a hanky edging. I have come up with a different solution for the corner (different from the first time I made it in the pink and blue version from the previous post).
It's a very pretty edging in my opinion; it is easy to make and grows quickly. I wrote out the pattern for you to enjoy and made a pdf of it which is available below. Whenever I have seen this edging, it usually didn't have a name - sometimes just a number - (though in one book it was called "Empress") so I decided to give it one of my own. "Fleurette" seemed an obvious choice for this lovely edging with small flowers.
Clicking on to image will take you to Google Docs where the pattern is stored.
And finally, to keep with the purple theme of this post, I have matching purple hands at the moment as I have just returned from picking...
They grow wild all around the lanes, and this year, are particularly tasty.
I'm off to make a batch of jam!
