Tat Your Snowflake According To Your Thread
This Anchor thread with a metallic element makes wonderfully twinkly snowflakes. But it is size 10. I made the first snowflake as I always do, using the pattern for the centre of an Anna Burda doily. It is much too big and floppy. I altered the stitch count, so that rings were 3-3-3-3 instead of having 5 picots. Ah, much better. And quicker to tat! That's important because I have undertaken to participate in a Christmas market at the end of the month and don't have much time to make things to sell.
