Forget-Me-Not Handkerchief

I started this hanky border during the last few days of the Easter holiday.  I had been inspired by Diane's version of it and decided to make one too.   This is Mary Konior's forget-me-not pattern from her book "A Pattern Book of Tatting".

When I went outside to take pictures of it, I found we still had a couple of patches of forget-me-not in our garden.  So here is the hanky pictured with the real thing!

I used Lizbeth size 40 so it grew quite quickly.  I crocheted one row with white thread around the hanky first, then used the pink thread and crochet to attach the lace to the first white row. 

Simple, but pretty I think.

Best wishes,


  1. That is a good idea to crochet a row first, the tatting and the photos are lovely, so pretty.

  2. Muy linda, el color rosado bello y la mfoto, entre las flores; ¡PRECIOSA!!

  3. Very pretty! I love this edging. I think I'll use size 40 next time, and there will be a next time!

  4. Very beautiful edging and color. Your tatting is wonderful and even! I like the way you've attached the tatting - it looks extra nice.

  5. Very nice finish! Your hanky is beautiful!

  6. Beautiful!!

  7. Beautiful edging, your hanky looks beautiful

  8. Pretty? PRETTY? It is gorgeous!

    Like Diane, I must use #40 next time. Your tatting is so perfectly consistent. What a treat!

    The crocheted edge is great. Must try that as well!

    Die Farbe gefällt mir auch sehr gut.
    Sehr hübsch.
