Thanks very much to the people who followed, read and commented on this blog through 2013. I appreciate your support! And wish you all a splendid year in 2014.
The 'carnation' is hyperbolic tatting. It's tatted in Milford size 40 thread, with tiny beads on the outer row. The beads look as though they're sprinkled over the flower, which just goes to show how convoluted the final row is. There's a loop at the back that the ribbon threads through.
That's so pretty, I've done hyperbolic crochet but not tatting, are there patterns out there for it?ReplyDelete
Hi Briony, there's a link to Patty Dowden's PDF about hyperbolic tatting on the right hand side of this page. This isn't a pattern as such, I just followed Patty's instructions and added beads.Delete
