This Mary Konior pattern looked intimidating in the book (Tatting in Lace) but it isn't difficult to tat. The challenge is to get all the chains with the same stitch count in equal length. I love the look of this but . . . .
I did not like the connecting threads in the pattern for the centre motif. I could not get them all equal in length so I decided to use split rings. Changed the colours and it looks very different from the top photo.
I used Coats Size 40 in red and Milford Size 40 in black. It measures about 2.5 inches square.
Thank you Gina for the red Coats thread. I really love this shade of red.
