Item 12 for 25 Motif tatting Challenge

tatting true to coloe
Above is motif 12 for the 25 Motif tatting challenge. This was put on hold while I worked on the advent calendar tutorials. I was reminded that I was doing this and hadn't posted in a while. So, here is the piece I have to post at the moment. It is a mixture of ring-only tatting and crochet. The top photo is true to colors of white and raspberry pink. The other two photos are not accurate for color; I had a hard time getting two more good images.

The second photo is so you can see the pattern, and the last photo is so you can see some of the edging. All laid out, there are about 24 inches of lace. I made it as long as the pink would let me; because it was a piece of scrap thread from another project, I didn't have much of it. Also it really isn't good for tatting, the pink that is. It was South Maid crochet thread, which isn't a very good quality thread, but I liked the vibrant color so I used it any way. However, I made sure it was for the crochet part of the piece. I have made a similar pattern in the past; I like mixing crochet and tatting. I think it is fun when the two textures meet and even neater when there are two or more colors to show off the color and stitch change.

Probably only another tatter would notice, but I didn't pay attention to my photos and my tatting is wrong side up!

  1. Great job! When I look at it, I see like dancing gents and ladies all in a row. I see thin little legs on the men and full skirts on the women. Is it just me? Probably. ;-)
