Tatting Together Square Motifs - Lene Bjorn

Fox recommended this pattern book to me when I asked which Iris Niebach book I should get. This book contains patterns from a class that Iris taught. The designs are from her students in this class. The designs are all very interesting and some look quite challenging. I chose this one to start tatting with.

This pattern on page 12 is by Lene Bjorn. It is the pink one on the book cover. Here I used Lizbeth Size 40 in #675 Fern Green medium and #165 Blue River Glades. I had to unpick several times but I love how the design turned out. I did however wished I had used a more contrasting colour and there is one extra picot somewhere in one of the chains. Did not see it until I was blocking it. The pattern is actually four squares joined up. Each square is tatted in one round with two shuttles.
