Swirl

This pattern by CreaHelga is written for needle tatting, but works fine with shuttles. I made a joining mistake early on, and then compensated for it later, rather than correcting the mistake. It's not too obvious, though you can see it if you look! I love the sense of movement in this ice drop.

 I like the beaded version of the pattern too, but am not happy with the idea of gluing beads to the outer picots. I might need to think about another plan for that.

  2. Looks fabulous!!!! :)
    Instead of gluing beads, couldn't they just be strung on the ball thread and slid into place as you go along??

  4. I haven't tried this pattern yet, but I plan to. It reminds me of the Spinning Wheel glass mat pattern that I love so much!
