Lene Bjorn's Snowflakes - 3rd & 12th

It was just sheer coincidence that I was tatting this snowflake the same time as Fox was tatting hers. I am posting this a little late. If you notice mine looks different. That is because a made a boo boo in the first green chain and had to improvise. The pattern is from Lene Bjorn's book '24 Snowflakes in Tatting' on page 11 - The Third Day of December. The threads are also from Fox through the thread exchange. Cebelia 20 Col. 743 (yellow) and 992 (green). Thank you Fox. I love the bright colour combo.

This pattern is on page 20 - The Twelve Day of December. Now the tatting here is not good and I should have made the picots larger. The chain tension was all over the place and blocking did not help either. This is done in Flora 20 Col. 246.


  1. Your stitches are divine! The mistake obviously really works in the first one - looks beautiful.

    I am going to have to try that orange one, which is also very pretty!

    You are such an inspiration!
    ♥ Fox : )

  2. I love both! The first one reminds me of a contemporary type sunflower in those colors, and the second one is just fabulous! :)

  3. Love the bright cheeriness of #3. I still have a center somewhere that I tatted for a specific project and then decided it was too big. I should finish or use it! #12 is so much chain work and it can get tricky keep up the same tension throughout. Another colorful bit of cheer!
