The samples for the Youngburg book keep coming. They are fantastic!
First is the Wild Rose pattern (#26) tatted by Ancolie:
The next is from Aurora:
And finally Kathleen Minniti’s sample. She writes, “I finally worked up the crown of the bonnet! It only took 6 tries with different stitch counts, use of an alternative picot placement technique, and different picot lengths for the central ring to get these motifs to work! Here it is:”
Kathleen also sends homework from more recent Monday classes:
She relates that she had a lot of fun with the Knotted Ring Picots, even though she misunderstood the directions at first and put her bead inside the ring! Here are photos of the first attempt, with the really interesting bead placement, and then a second attempt with the beads placed as per directions.
The second motif is tatted onto a brass ring – she plans to make a wind chime/sun catcher with it later.
Tatters are creative. They like to experiment when learning new techniques. Kathleen set herself the challenge of Balanced Double Stitch. That lead to creating this pattern. It is worked up in Aunt Lidia’s crocher thread size 10.
Thank you Kathleen for sharing your pattern:
