Medina - progress

Sorted - I think!!!

Took me two more attempts to get it right but I think this is a much easier tat with the lock chains. 

The BIG problem with lock chains is how to put a picot on them. In the end I resorted to doing it a new way - sort of. It's pretty easy and you'll see when I get the pattern on my site that I've got a new way of notating this too.

If anybody wants to test tat it please do drop me a line but it'll need doing pretty quickly or I'll forget all about putting this on the pattern site!!   You know me and BC3 - I'm always finding half finished ideas on my system!!! 

It’s a challenging piece to tat but a lot easier with the lock chains so a little experience would be needed - if you want to test tat it.

Next project?  Turning Medina into an angel with lots of beads!!!

It does look challenging, and I'm not a fast tatter, but I'd be willing to try!

I’ll send it over later, Diane. Just need to make sure all the diagrams are in the right places!!!

No promises Jane, but I’ll give it a go. Those long lock chains with picots look challenging.

Remember, fine thread means smaller size. If this is intended as size 20, doing it in King Tut thread would mean it will be about half size.
