For those of you who kindly expressed interest in Le Flocon Royal, it is now available in my Etsy shop.  I have re-christened it with an English name keeping with the royal theme as was inspired by the crown-shaped points.

And this new pattern includes a DIAGRAM!

Here are three different versions of it, with more or fewer beads, all tatted in Lizbeth size 20.

This one has 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones,
a three-bead picot on the centre chains,
and a larger seed bead just below the trefoils.

This one has faceted 4mm crystal beads only.

This one has the Swarovskis again
and a Miyuki Delica bead below the trefoil.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas tatting.  All this testing of patterns has provided me with many ornaments to give away as well as fulfilling the purpose of getting my patterns ready!

Again, my appreciative thanks go to Carol Lepard for test-tatting this pattern and providing many useful comments.  She also made some pretty versions of this with even more beads which she will hopefully show on her blog soon.

Best wishes,
