updated pattern for Eileen Stafford snowflake from Val and homework submitted

Thank you Val for sharing your update for this snowflake pattern!

“I was intrigued with the crossed chains in the correct photograph of Eileen’s snowflake but as I don’t do needle tatting I have been experimenting to see if this effect can be achieved with a  shuttle… and it can, quite easily. It’s easy to do but harder to explain simply
. Here  goes.
Amend the last line of Round 2 to read:
Ch10, then bring the ball thread up at the back of the work up and arch it over the chain you have just made, leaving the ball thread hanging down. The ball thread must hang down at the front of the chain. Now rw.
Continue from *, amending the last line of the pattern each time.

Note, when you have completed the next and each succeeding clover, ensure the ball chain lies close to the clover before tatting the next chain. I usually fold the last clover leaf over the centre one to  make a snug fit.
Easy-peasy.
