Icy Blue Snowflake

Icy Blue Snowflake

     I've had many request for this pattern.  I designed it April 2010...whew seems like ages ago.   An early Christmas Present...

Size 80 Tatting Thread  
1 – Shuttle, Large  
144 (plus extra for the hanger) – 11/0 Seed Beads

Procedure:  Any size thread/beads can be substituted.  All rings and chains are composed of five double stitches.

 Load 144 – seed beads onto the ball.  Slide 96 – of these seed beads on to the shuttle, as you wind it up.

  Tat around, according to the diagram.  Cut ends, leaving a 12” tail.  Add seed beads to the tail, for desired length.  Tie ends and enjoy.

     I had to design a pair of Tatsmithed, Coral earrings to go with my my coral pikle purse from In a Pikle.  One half for tatting (of course) and the other for regular purse stuff.
