Just spent 2 hours writing out pattern and adding photo, previewed it and guess what. All gone. not happy I hate this blogger thing. unwieldy What You See is Certainly NOT What You Get.
Have to keep regigging it.
Pattern follows. I havn't put when to reverse work or not to as I had trouble working it out at the time. May come back to this, as I think it may expand. However, I have 2 difficulties.
1 Any bigger than this and I can't work out how to balance the pattern, stitch count etc. and literealy use miles of thread doing it.
2 Still can't get my head round hiding ends other than cut and tie.

It is the Elegant Snowflake from Rozella F Linden's book Easy Tatting. I could not get the length of thread correct between the 5 rings of the points, so substituted a 3 ds chain instead.
It is now on it's way to Margaret in Canada.

Finca perle size 16, strange variagation the white shows up every few feet but omly for a few inches.
BJ strikes again!! She sent me some King Tut Quilting thread. By heck that is so fine. So I doubled it up for this Pentagram? Enjoyed working with it. I break threads a lot because I play a guitar and have long nails on my right hand and particularly strong ones on my thumbs.
