One More Round...


This would already make a nice collar as is.  I've also figured out that tatting it open like this makes it possible to tat rounds 1-5 continuously!  It does mean that you would have to work two of the rounds with the back facing up but you would just need to use reverse order stitches (as in front side / back side tatting) for those two rounds which is not a problem.  I often use traditional tatting but in this case, I would definitely make sure the front of all my stitches are on the same side.

On to the next round!

Best wishes,
Frivole

  1. With that round finished it would be a better size for me (small as I am). Wonderful work!

    1. Yes, I think that's what's nice about this pattern, you could stop at different places depending on the width you desire. :-)

    1. I agree with you Jane. I now feel like I need to make several different collars, stopping at different places of the pattern. :-)

  3. It is very dainty like this! Those trellis x-es look like they take up a lot of time and concentration!

    1. Thank you Lavi, the trellis work is not a hard as it looks! And you accomplish quite a lot in one round so it's satisfying. :-)

  4. Ooh - that is just lovely. I'd stop someone in the street wearing that so I could admire it more closely. Best not to be in a hurry going anywhere when you wear any of them... But so far, this is my favourite!

    1. Very glad you like it Megan! I wouldn't mind if I were stopped... and could then tell someone about how great tatting is! :-)
