Tatting


I just made this wine glass coaster - pattern from the online tatting class. I'm quite pleased with it. xx




















  Today's project: 7/01/12: A button brooch pattern from: http://pineywoodstatter.blogspot.com/2012/01/basic-button-brooch-foundation-pattern.html?showComment=1325977739822#c1050098525282158766

I love her designs.








I joined a tatting challenge in the New Year. Jane Eborall, has a Blog called 'Tat it and See'. http://tatitandsee.blogspot.com/

Every few days she posts part of a pattern and we try to guess what it is as the days go by.  We are up to day 9 and this is my contribution.

Guess what it is!!!! ;)








I have also been designing a Heart-shaped pattern and here is my first attempt.

I.am reasonably happy with it.  The picots were particularly difficult to get right.








Here is the pattern, available FREE for personal use.



Kohaku Heart                                                            Designed by Madwomanlace
“According to Henry Dreyfus, the word for red and white, Kohaku, is pronounced as one word in Japanese. Ko means red, while haku translates as white. Their use together immediately signifies happiness and celebration to the Japanese viewer. The combination of red and white in the decorative ornaments used on wedding or engagement presents -noshi or kaishi- has a compelling quality that suggests man's urge to create a bond between his own life and that of the gods.  Red and white are also the colors of the uniforms that shrine maidens wear (denoting these colors divine nature.)

 Please use this pattern responsibly.  It is available FREE for personal use only. Please do not sell items made from this pattern.




The centre of the heart is white and consists of 5 rings, containing elongated (very large) picots of varying size.
Use white thread:
R 1:  8 / 3vsp/ 10 /  VLP 10mm  / 2 / VLP 25m / 2 / VLP 40mm / 2 / VLP 50mm / 2 / VLP 65mm / 7 / 3vsp / 8  Cl
R2: 8 + 3vsp / 7 / VLP 60mm / 2 / VLP 50mm / 2 / VLP 45mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 30mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 7 / 3vsp / 8 / Cl
R3:  6 / +3vsp / 5 / VLP 25mm / 2 / VLP 20mm / 2 / VLP 20mm / 2 / VLP 20mm / 2/ VLP 20mm / 2 /  VLP 25mm / 7 / 3vsp / 6 Cl
R4: 8 + 3vsp / 7 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 30mm / 2 / VLP 35mm / 2 / VLP 45 mm / 2 / VLP 50mm / 2 / VLP 60mm / 7 / 3vsp / 8 Cl
R5: 8 + 3vsp / 7 / VLP 65mm / 2 / VLP 50mm / 2 / VLP 40mm / 2 / VLP 25mm / 2 / VLP 10mm / 10 / + 3vsp / 8 / Cl.


Border:  This is worked in red thread, using rings and chains. Each ring has 2 picots at the top end, separated by a join to one of the very large picots.  NB: when joining to the VLP, put one twist (or more if  you desire) onto the VLP, making sure you continue in the same manner throughout.  The only exception is when you reach the ‘half way point’, which is R3, where the 4 20mm VLP are joined together.

R1: 5  /- / + to first picot on R1) / - / 5 Cl, RW.
Ch1: 3 / - / - / - / 3 (NB the centre of these 3 picots can be slightly longer – refer to photo), RW.

These 2 instructions are repeated until you reach 13th chain.

Ch 13: 5, RW
R14:  8 / - / + / - / 8 (all 4 10mm picots are linked together here) Cl, RW
R15:  10  - / - / - / 10 Cl,
Ch16: 5 / LJ to the point where the 12th chain and 13th picot join.
Ch17:  5 / - / - / - / 5 / + (to first of 3 picots on R15) / 5 / - / - / - / 5 / + ( to 3rd picot on R15) / 5 / - / - / - / 5 / vsp / 5 / + ( to base of R15), RW,  5 / LJ to vsp just made.

From R16: repeat R1 and Ch1 to end, connecting the last chain to the first, so that the first and last rings are also joined (see photo).

A new tatting challenge: A Tat-a-long by UMI & TSURU - a Ruth Scharf Pattern


Here is my first flower (Blute) motif, which still leaves a little to be desired tension-wise, but I am relatively pleased with it!  I used a Lizbeth 20s thread, colour: 114.
