Three Snowflakes From Jon's New Book!





Here are three of the snowflakes from Jon Yousoff's new book "Snowflake Collection" that I tested for her. The purple one is "Spring Blossom" in size 20. The blue one is "Floret" in size 20. The variegated teal/blue one is "Circle of Crowns" in size 50 hand dyed thread.

It was a thrill to test these for Jon. They are well written and diagrammed. I am proud to finally show them to you. They will make lovely additions to my Rainbow Christmas Tree this year.

I hope you will all have as much fun with the book as I have had with these patterns. Well done Jon!

All three are just beautiful. I am partial to the purple-lavender one. Madeline

Hi Laura,
I love the snowflakes. Your tree will be so spectacular that maybe you should have a tinsel kind of three and have it out all year long for show and tell. I would do that myself if I had more room in my house.
I want to know though where did you get the teal/blue hand dyed thread? I haven't seen that colorway before.

They are all lovely, snowflakes are one of my favorite things to tat. I'll have to place an order sometime.

The snowflakes are beautiful Laura and I love the colours you tatted them in.

Thanks to all of you. Their beauty is entirely due to Jon's lovely patterns. You are so welcome Jon. It was fun! Sherry aka Celtic Dream Weaver - the thread is a HDT from Craft Supplies Ltd. 31 Gurney Rd, Lower Hutt, NZ. I can't find the tag with the color number. My good friend Clyde shared this thread with me. He could probably help you contact them.

Very nice! How fun to get to test tat. It must have been hard to keep this all "under your hat".

These snowflakes would make good flowers, too! You've done them so nicely. I'm going to be getting Jon's book -- it's very hard to wait!
