Flicking through my books for inspiration tonight, I decided to tat this diamond motif by Susanne Schwenke from her book "Spitzen-Kreationen".  It could be a square too of course but in the book, it is shown as a diamond.

I was thinking of tackling a larger piece made with some of those and slightly smaller ones (as shown in the book) but after tatting this one, I'm not so sure.  

It feels a little crowded around the tips and there's a bit of tension in places and I'm not completely happy with it.  I also think it would be one of those designs where I'd need to constantly refer to the diagram... 

Oh well.  I think I'll try something else.

Best wishes,


  1. It is a nice overall design. 🌹

  2. Einen Versuch ist es wert. Das Design ist sehr schön

  3. Pretty pattern looks a little fussy in places,

  4. I see what you mean, but it is a beautiful diamond !

  5. There are just not enough square/diamond patterns don't you think.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment, it's always appreciated!
