Squarer?

Tatting doesn't really lend itself to square, with its curved chains and circular rings. But I increased the size of the rings at the corners and think this one looks better than yesterday's version. I could perhaps increase the outward-facing rings a wee bit more. I blocked it, but don't want a design that has to be blocked into submission!

  1. Yup, a little more on the corners and (maybe) a ds less each side of the side chains? Nearly there and it's looking even better. None of this is wasted as you've got a gorgeous result anyway.

  2. Absolutely wonderful !!!
    Would increasing the corner chains a notch prevent the need to block ?

  3. I agree, this one does look better! Tweaking designs sure takes a lot of time, doesn't it?

  5. It looks great!! :) I was thinking maybe shortening the side chains, but not the corner chains.

  6. Yes, I agree with God's Kid and I too just tried at making a square and it is fun.I think it is because it is a task that doesn't overwhelm us. But I think she will use our other tries πŸ¦‹πŸ˜„πŸ¦‹

  7. I agree with previous comments, also I think a little trefoil in the corner could help. I also like that you can see the back tatting through the transparent glass.
