Pinwheel Tatted Doily

This wonderful design is by Nancy Tracy and you can link to this free pattern on the Be-Stitched pattern page. It is labelled as 'Tatted Doily Row 5 Feb 2012' near the bottom of the page.

Mine is tatted in Lizbeth Size 40 threads in Violet Pink Dark (#635) and Raspberry Frappe (#157) and measures about 8 inches across.

Funny that you only notice mistakes when you are blocking the piece. I found one in the photo and I could not let it be and did correct it later. I love the negative spaces. It is rather flimsy so it has to lie flat on the table. I think I will tat this again, . . . soon.

Thank you Nancy for a lovely pattern.


  1. Stunning work! Lovely colours you've used too.

  2. That is truly gorgeous!!! :)

  3. That is absolutely beautiful. I love the colors and the balance of positive/negative space.

  4. Oh my! That is. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

  5. There appears to be something wrong with the link?

  6. Lovely pattern and my favourite thread raspberry frappe,
    Well done, looks beautiful

  7. Very pretty.
    I am like you, I scanned a piece, and on the computer monitor could see a bunch of dog hairs. Sigh. At least that was easy to fix. :-)

  8. Wonderful, Wendy.

    I might just have a go at this with the pastels you sent to me. I think that would work very well, don't you?
    Fox : )

  9. I always love patterns with negative space. To my eye, it shows the beauty of tatting much better than the cloying, claustrophobic feeling of patterns that are “over-filled”.
