Spiral Snowflake is small, so I used thread left on shuttles to try it out, which is why my colour changes are a little strange. It's also why I used bare thread spaces instead of 2 ds chains for the centre of the second one. I really like the spiral, it has a wonderful sense of movement. The josephine knots and their placement are genius because they accentuate the spiral effect.
I must confess I was daunted by five pages of pattern! Then I realised that the pattern itself is only half a page. I needn't be put off by extra information.
Now that my shuttles are empty, I'll make another spiral in one colour.
