Angeline's Travelling Book Adventure - Setting Small Doilies Together
I wanted to try this - 4 coasters joined with a small motif in the centre. The coaster pattern is called Edge of Triplet Coaster with Square (pp165) and the pattern for the small motif which joins all four together is on page 205. The tatting sequence suggested you tat the 3 coasters first, then the joining motif and last - the 4th coaster. I did just that but with an adaptation . . . as a result of misreading the pattern. Yup!! My coasters has only 12 instead of 16 rings in the 2nd round so the joining motif is also smaller by one round. I used Lizbeth Size 40 threads in #633 Dark Purple and #113 Jewels.
I also leave you with this other tip from Angeline Crichlow, which I wrote in my tatting note book.
