Turquoise Fandango Bookmark

I tatted this again in Size 40 Lizbeth #657 Ocean Turquoise Dark and #158 Niagara Falls. Jane suggested starting the pattern with variegated threads and a solid colour for shuttle 2. I decided to switch the variegated threads to shuttle 2 instead and this is what it looks like. I wanted the darker solid colour to form the border. I tatted 5 repeats and added a tail. It looks different from the previous one I posted a few days ago.


  1. I am glad you tried this experiment. Now I know what I would do.

    Definitely, I prefer the two solids as I do not think the variegated thread works with the split rings as well.

    The pink and green bookmark, to me, is much more effective.
    Fox : )

  2. I think the reason Jane suggested starting with the variegated was so that the joins didn't have to be larks heads or on the second side of a split ring (both of which are sort of a pain compared to a down join).

  3. I really like that color combo! :)
