Patterns for Pizzazz

I can't make it work. Basically, every where there is a chain you need to reverse the order of the stitches. On snowflake #2 that applies only to the first round. The second round is all Josephine Chains so it won't apply. Sorry.

I hope you enjoy these.

PIZZAZZ SNOWFLAKE #1
Copyright 2008 Laura Blanton

Abbreviations
R ring
Ch chain
- picot
Clr close ring
Rw reverse work
Dnrw do not reverse work
+ join

I used front side/back side tatting in this pattern. I have started tatting almost everything that way. It just looks so much better to me and is no trouble. Using Jane’s method, I have used italics and bold to mark sections where I suggest reversing the order of the ds to achieve this look.

You will need two shuttles, preferably wound CTM

FIRST ROUND

Start with center ring of top three ring cluster.
R2-4-4-2 clr
R2+2-4 clr rw
Ch 4-4 rw
*R4+2-2 clr join it to picot on previous ring
R2+4-4-2 clr
R2+2-4 clr rw
Ch 4-4 *rw
Repeat from * to * 5 times
Ch 4-4 join to center of 1st cluster
SR 4+ to picot on last ring / 2+ to picot on beginning ring 2 clr rw

SECOND ROUND
*Ch 6 rw
*R 5-5-5-5 clr rw
Ch 7 rw
R 5+4 (-)5 times, 4-5 clr rw
Ch 7 rw
R 5-5-5-5 clr rw
Ch 6 + to picot between clusters on round one dnrw continue chain 6 rw *
Repeat from * to * 5 times joining ending chain 6 to picot between clusters below. Dnrw continue chain 6 and join to beginning ring. Cut, tie and finish off ends.

PIZZAZZ SNOWFLAKE #2 IN LAVENDER

Abbreviations
R ring
Ch chain
- picot
Clr close ring
Rw reverse work
Dnrw do not reverse work
+ join

This pattern requires knowledge of Josephine Chains and Rings.

You will need two shuttles, preferably wound CTM. If two colors, as in this example, one color on each shuttle and tie together.

FIRST ROUND

Same as first round of Pizzazz Snowflake #1

SECOND ROUND

*Josephine Chain of 25 half ds. (I used the second half) SS
Josephine Ring of 15 half ds. (I used the second half) SS
Josephine Chain of 25 half ds Join to space between two three ring clusters below.*
Repeat from * to * 5 times.
Cut, tie and finish off ends.
