Does anybody?


Does anybody recognise this pattern yet? 

I did say who's it was in my last post about it but I bet you've forgotten!!! 

I hear people agonising about their 'blips' of colour when doing lock joins but don't you see how they can enhance a design? Mostly I don't care about them but in this case I embrace them.

  5. You've already re-tatted the beginning of the Dora Young pattern, and I love the 'blips'! So good to see that they can add to a design! It's wonderful that you are bringing attention to Dora's book and her unique place in the tatting world, and so great that Heidi has brought about its re-publication. I'm sure Teri D would be pleased, as she recognized early on the importance of what is now called the split chain. Teri then designed her own 'Pineapple Doily' using Dora's 'invention' and tatters finally took notice of the split chain. I'm afraid the term 'knotless tatting' caused some confusion when the book was first published.

  6. I love the colors you've used for this one. There's something about these single picots and lock joins in Dora's patterns that give tatting a fabric like texture that's so unusual. Like you Jane, I keep going back and trying them in different colors. Heidi
