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.
While experimenting with the Hannah pattern I’ve stumbled on something I think will look very nice, but is not the Hannah pattern.
The two points at the bottom in this image are the keepers. The new centre is good – it turns the centre from Hannah inwards, so the rings start in the centre and makes a new row. And the points will give the diamond shapes I was wanting to have in Hannah that didn’t quite work out.
An easy and open pattern first experiment. I will try again with longer points (see the point on top). I’m not sure if I’ve captured the diamond shape that I wanted to keep, so I will see if the longer point is more satisfying.
The open and airy pattern combined with the points (with the diamond shape) on this doily are very appealing for me. The Hannah snowflake will be open and airy, and those diamond shaped points will need to be incorporated.
