Mary's blog,, but used the link from Marja's blogpost to find the pattern here. I didn't download the pattern properly, because I didn't want to sign up for yet another app or program, Scribd, but I could follow the pattern anyway.
I made a spiral chain this time instead of Victorian sets. I should've reread my own post about Sherry Pence's tips for tatting spiral chains, but no, I didn't, so I did flip the stitches. Oddly, I found that it wasn't the working shuttle I had to let drop to rewind, it was the one forming the stitches. Perhaps that's why direct stitches work better.
I've wanted to tat this for quite some time now. I like what you are doing!!! And nice tips :-)))ReplyDelete
That was my favorite butterfly for a long time. Looks great!! :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful tatted butterfly. I have yet to attempt the butterfly pattern - yours is so pretty. (thx for sharing all the links) Agree with you: Spirals can be a challenge ; )ReplyDelete
