Snowflake 7

Another snowflake from Barbara's book. 

No, not tatting all the patterns in this book but maybe half of the patterns. Trying to shake of the fear of twisted chains in Ben Fikkert's Corona. How many more will it take?

This is tatted in two colours of Lizbeth Size 20 - Col. 111 Cotton Candy and 627 Shell Pink Medium.


  1. Great therapy - it is very pretty!

  2. Lovely tatting, great chains.

  3. Ben Fikkert's twisted chains aren't difficult once you get started. I haven't done the Corona, but I have tatted some of his other patterns. Getting over the fear of starting is the worst part, although I confess I did some twisted chain 'practice' before starting them in the first doily I tatted that used them. :-) In the meantime, I am enjoying the snowflakes and the lovely colors you have chosen for them. :-)

  4. This is lovely and I know you will overcome this twisted chain problem. I have to admit when I saw them I did not really like that part of twisted chains, and it doesn't take that much time to do it. I do feel that pinning and wetting them (like you do) is very good and important for that part!
