Fox and I decided to tat this together. It is a Iris Niebach pattern - Annalisa. It is tatted in one round which makes it so wonderful but the twists and turns will challenge you. After the first repeat, it does get easier and the reward is a beautifully designed pattern.
You see I was quite intimidated by the pattern that I tatted the easiest variation - Annamaria, first time round. Yes, again it was Fox that instigated it by tatting it first here. Mine is here.
I am beginning to see the beauty of tatting in Size 80 threads. It is a pain to unpick but the tatting turns out so delicate. I may just try it again with the last variation of this pattern - Annarita.
