Cornelia is a pattern from Iris Niebach's book Tatted Doilies. The pattern looked simpler than Milena but I had never 'retro tatted' so many times in one pattern as this. A lovely pattern by Iris but I guess I was not totally focussed when I tatted this.
This is a very auspicious pattern from the Chinese perspective, well at least I think so. What fruit do you see in this pattern and how many of these fruits do you see? I used Lizbeth Falling Leaves (Col. 100) in Size 20.
It took approx. 45 metres of shuttle thread and 20 meters of ball thread. If you are trying this pattern, please allow a little extra to be sure.
