Pop-over Collar Motif

Are you wondering about the title. It is the name of the pattern in Lyn Morton's book Tatting Patterns on page 52. But instead of making a collar I decided to go with a square which will be framed. It is tatted in shades of green. You may only see one green on your monitor but the other three are shades of moss green. I posted the motif last week with larger picots here. Done in thread size 40 and it measures about 6 inches square.


  1. I have been waiting to see this! It looks amazing and I am so impressed that you used the motif and made the square.

    What threads did you use? The colours really work well.

    BTW - the Caron thread is fantastic! I will post the Stumpy bookmark soon...
    ♥ Fox : )

  2. I see the colors very distinctly, and I think they're gorgeous! I love the way you've put them together. It makes for a very interesting study in color.

  3. Very unusual and really pretty, and the colours seem to work really well!

  4. I can see all the colors too, even on this tiny monitor screen! Looks intriguing.

  5. Thanks for letting me know you can see all the shades of green. I was inspired by the colours at the shop. I loved the greens and could not decide which shade to buy so I decided to get a few which would go together. When I was browsing through patterns to tat, I thought this would be the perfect pattern. The threads are Olympus Cordonnet Special.
