This is my first partially successful attempt to create a six sided tatted snowflake which I will call Florence. It’s still a bit warped, but it is coming along.
The changes I have made from the original four sided pattern so far are:
- making six points
- reducing the size of the first, inner row by making the rings smaller
- reducing the smaller, echo point between major points on the second, outer row down from 3 rings to 1 large one
But as you can see from the photo, more work on spacing is needed. It’s a bit fluted along the edge.
I have used some spare variegated thread that I had on hand to create this iteration of the snowflake pattern because the inspiration thread is also variegated. No, this thread is not very snowy. It’s looks more autumn before the snow falls. But it does demonstrate how this pattern works with variegated thread.
Finishing a six sided snowflake – even if it still needs work – is encouraging for me. I think I will be quite happy with this pattern when all the wrinkles are worked out.
