Third Attempt - Continued


In the book, some designs evolve into larger ones. So I did not mind tatting this three times because I could continue this into a larger one. With the additional two more rounds, this ended up measuring about 8.5 inches across. I love what the 3rd round gave to this design but did not care too much for the 4th round. I still think I should have used a thicker thread to give it more structure. To refresh your memory - 1st, 2nd and 3rd attempts.

  3. It's lovely and so even! I really like it in black thread. You certainly have a lot of patience to keep trying to get it to look the way you want to. I usually give up and try something else!

  4. Thank you all for your comments. I felt I could have blocked it better. It is definitely not a perfect circle. I use mouse pads to pin down my tatting for blocking and two mouse pads was not even big enough. I should also use a template for pinning.
