The end results of my work with the Gail pattern, done with thinner size 12 thread. I like the dangling centre, it moves when the snowflake is hanging from a thread and a bit of air movement catches it. Adding one more stitch between each ring on the frame made the pattern come into focus and sit properly.
I’m very happy with this pattern and it is available as part of my Graces pattern at my Etsy site knotshire.etsy.com
Final results of my pattern Gwen. This looks like a very easy pattern, but it does use 2 shuttles, and the Josephine Knots require a certain amount of focus I hadn’t expected! It could just be that the thinner thread is more challenging.
I am pleased with the results, and the pattern is included with my 3 Graces pattern on my Etsy store Knotshire.etsy.com
The centre from snowflake Diane with some picots added to the outer chains makes for a nice frilly centre for Gail.
This frame for the Gail snowflake centre has potential… I’ve stretched the frame out with my fingers to make it bigger, so it gives an idea of what the end doily may look like. I need to modify the number of stitches I’m using in the portion you can see in white.
The next step is to try this in the smaller thread, and with a modified stitch count in the frame.
