Making Magic

When I finished the curds and whey edging I thought, I must tat more Mary Konior patterns. I've also been wanting to tat a larger magic square. So when I was browsing through my bookmarks on Saturday and came across Robin Perfetti's pattern for a magic square made from Mary Konior's patchwork pattern, I knew it was just what I was looking for.

I started working with one shuttle and a ball, but that really wasn't going to work for a pattern that has chains and rings facing this way and that. When I made a mistake I took the opportunity to start again using two shuttles. It's much easier to keep the tensions correct and the whole piece lies flatter, even before blocking.
Now I hope I can find my way through the magic maze, following Robin's diagram.


  1. Looks like you are off to a wonderful start!!! :)

  2. I love Robbins work and this makes me feel so guilty I wanted to try this and just started something else😯

  3. Robin did a great job with this conversion and your tatting is doing full justice to it :-)

  4. So far so good! I'm excited to see how this one turns out!
