More buttons with another version

Three more of the little buttons and one slightly different one!!!!

Well, actually that's not quite right!!  The only 'normal' one is the bluish one at the top of the group of three.  The other two in that group are the size 30 HDT wound with the sewing/quilting thread.  Not only does it make an interesting combination colourwise BUT it also makes it work up 'as' a number 20.  

So, the formula is 1 size 30 HDT (or any 30 thread!!!) + 1 size sewing thread = 1 size 20.  Even I can work that out and math ain't my favourite subject!!!

Do you like the one at the bottom?  I'll add this to the pattern page.  VERY simple adaptation but worth the extra effort.  Well, I think so.

  1. I have a copy of this pattern that you had printed in a magazine a few years ago. Have done it several times. It had dangling bead strings, which i liked.

  9. I love it! I love your free patterns too. I'm a new tatter and not very good yet, but your patterns give me something to practice with and a reason to keep practicing. I can't wait for this one to be added to your pattern page!!

  10. I'm a needle tatter and am trying to make some of these. I LOVE the pattern, but your lock join for the button is confusing me like crazy. Any suggestions? It seems like my needle needs to be over and under the button all at the same time :)
