After a long time without working on the Heathers patterns I have come back to them! And the Harriet pattern is disappointing so far.
I tried adding in some rings inside the pattern, and they just look messy.
I’ve also experimented with the “donuts” purple inside white, rather than the alternating colours as I did with the first experiment. As you can see with the larger thread… the base of each one looks awkward, and the size of the joins is very variable. This is likely because I am using rings inside the donuts, where most donuts are done with chains. I will need to rethink this pattern.
Once again I go to an old tatting pattern book: Anne Orr Tatting #35 for inspiration. I like the points on this four sided medallion. I will experiment with making a six-pointed snowflake from the points I see here.
