I tatted with Lizbeth size 20, color 134. Size is 7 cm.

Using Catherine wheel join, the chain of last round seems neat. I like this way.

Tina Frauberger Round Star

Tatted by Frances Burgess

Here is my improved version of the Round Star where the outer floating rings are more stable and evenly set. This was achieved by the last round being worked as 6ds, Catherine Wheel Join (Debbie Arnold) to picot on previous round, floating ring (passing shuttle down through ring before closing) then second half of a ds to snug up the ring in the correct position, 6ds.

This motif was a lot more difficult than it supeficially appeared to be!
I have developed a respect and interest in Tina Frauberger’s patterns. I particularly like wrestling with the german and also find her cryptic descriptions of Verbindungsbogen with the superfixes for the floating rings very easy to work.
Here is Frances first version of  the “Round Star”:

“Motif was tatted with Lizbeth Size 20 thread, Variegated Color 136 (Autumn Spice) and Solid Color 670 (Victorian Red).

Finished motif is 3 1/4″ in diameter.

After tatting the motif, I think I like Donata’s adaptation of the pattern better than the original.  I believe it would hold it’s shape better if the outside thrown rings were added to the row immediately before the last, and then the last chain row tatted with joins encircling the base of the thrown rings.

The thread is Coats Puppets Eldorado      shade 128, lemon/pale blue, #6The notes from her regarding this pattern are below.

“The scanner has not made a good likeness of the colour in this instance unfortunately.
I found the pattern very troublesome. Round 3 came out too small and wouldn’t lay flat and went up like the sides of a basket (!) – I think I made the picots on Round 2 too large.
In Round 4, I found I didn’t really know how best to combine the joining a chain to a picot in a previous row and simultaneously making the 4-4-4-4 ring. I tried making a SCMR but whatever I did it was difficult to make the rings stand at right angles to the chains.
I notice that in the original TF book, that there is an illustration, fig 58, of several of these motifs joined between parallel chains (onion rings) and this would seem a good idea to stabilize the outer rings.  (This is figure 58 Frances mentions.)
Having said all that, pressing the motif under the scanner seems to have subdued its efforts to stray in wrong directions!”
