Thistle


Sally created a great thistle pattern
She tatted some recently here and 
it reminded me that I wanted to tat one. 

Blocked the thistle before cutting the long picots.



Thank you Sally.

Happy International Tatting Day!

  1. So elegant, and what a good idea to block before cutting the long picots. I now fray them to get a thistle effect but yours is stunning.

  12. Lovely thistle! Love the colors. Thanks for tip on blocking, I can see it would be a lot harder if they were cut first. Hope your International Tatting Day was full of tatting and pleasant times.
