Ruth Perry's Celtic Snowflake 2008

 


I had already admired this snowflake tatted by others, but after Clyde so graciously gifted me with one of his I had to try it myself. I used this size 20 Flora thread first as I was afraid it would be too difficult and I would waste my hand dyed thread. Not so! It is very simple, especially once you "learn" it.

I used approximately 20 yards of thread in size 20. I put 10 yards on each shuttle and had very little left on either of them.

Let me go see which of my hand dyed threads wants to be a Celtic snowflake!

O.k. I am seeing this snowflake everywhere but I cannot seem to locate the pattern. Will you be kind enough to post the link?

It turned out perfect Laura, but of course it would. You are a talented tatter.I can't wait to see which HDT you decide to make it in.

Very pretty, Laura! Isn't that pattern fun once you get the hang of the twist? Looking forward to seeing more of them.

Thanks Diane. I've got my shuttles full!
Thank you Tattingchic and you are welcome.
Lady Shuttle Maker, I sent you an email.
Thank you Clyde. It's not as neat as yours, but it will do! Do I need to have everyone guess which thread it will be?
Thanks Madeline.
Thank you Steph. It really is fun when you get the hang of it. I didn't believe it when the directions said it could be done without looking at the directions once it was "learned", but it's true.
It is a pretty pattern Yarnplayer. You are right!
