Taj Mahal Snowflake

This snowflake was designed by Margaret Davies. It was definitely NOT boring to tat this. I had fun, although I must admit I wanted to tat this snowflake in one colour thread but decided to change threads when I had to cut out the mistakes I made.

Tatted in one round using two shuttles in Lizbeth Size 40 
Col. 188 Coral Splash
Note the overlapping rings.

Next rounds, I changed to a Lizbeth Size 40 
Col. 706 Sunkist Coral.

Went back to Coral Splash for the last round. 
Margaret put in a Josephine ring at each point while 
tatting a split chain back. Now that was fun.

Thank you Margaret for this wonderful pattern.
The resulting snowflake is pretty,
isn’t it?


  1. It’s interesting to see the different stages because once it’s finished I tend to focus on the sticking out bits. There’s so much more to it.

  2. It's so pretty and bright!!! :)

  3. Its beautiful and your thread suits the pattern well.

  4. Beautiful and regal! Are you test tatting it? I'm sure Margaret is pleased!

  5. I am delighted you did my snowflake, its looks beautiful in that thread and thank you for the wonderful display, also how you showed the various parts to the pattern.
