24 of 25

Pattern: The Third Day of December from the book 24 Snowflakes in Tatting by Lene Bjørn.
Thread: Lizbeth size 20, col 613 & col 623 & col 680.
Technique: Shuttle tatted.

I started to do this pattern in a single shade and thought the middle looked like a flower so started it again in these colours to see what would happen.

I took the picture before blocking just in case anything drastic happened to it when trying to pin it out.

I wanted to tackle this snowflake as soon as I got the book but figured it might be too difficult. I'm not sure exactly why I found it so daunting but I'm glad I got over it and gave it a try.

Thanks all for the nice comments. I was quite pleased with how this one turned out. It's a small book Arlene but I like it very much.

Thank you!

I still haven't blocked it in fear of making it look bad. I might just leave this one as it is.
