Doing the Fandango!

After seeing Jane's blogpost yesterday about her new Fandango square pattern, I had a go at making one.  I like the effect you get with the two colours on this one - and particularly liked Jane's in pink and green.

Would be nice to play with this a bit more.  I think a few together would look interesting with the pattern that would emerge if you did it in two colours.

Right, back to the doily!

Best wishes,


  1. I like the dark blue and white together... very striking!

  2. Your colors really show the design off well. I really love it!

  3. You beat me to it! I really like this pattern. Funnily enough, I just finished one that employs split rings all around the centre - very appealing.
    Fox : )

  4. I'm thinking hard about doing more with this one. Beads, bling etc. Thanks for trying it, Frivole

  5. I love the colours, looks a lovely motif
    I could not leave you a comment the other day, but I wanted to say your tatting is always beautiful

  6. Thank you very much everyone. I'm sure many others will have a go at that little square, it's appealing and fairly quickly tatted.

  7. That is so attractive! I haven't tried split rings, they seem intimidating! (:

  8. Hi Anika,
    They're not as hard as they look, I would go ahead and give it a try! It's just the start of a ring as normal and then you make the second half with your other shuttle but without flipping the stitches. I bet it wouldn't take you long to master it.


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