Daisy Picot Star - the Diagram

Here it is, the diagram/chart for the daisy picot star.



Here are some notes to the chart.

  • Pattern uses the technique of Daisy picot rings. The daisy picot rings are shown in red in the diagram.
  • Please refer to my blog post on how to make a daisy picot ring, https://tatsaway.blogspot.my/2007/10/daisy-picot-snowflake.html
  • The double stitch count in all rings of the daisy picot cluster is 5-5.
  • The space before, between and after each daisy picot ring is two double stitches, i.e. the 'ring' shown in green in the middle of the daisy picot rings cluster.
  • The double stitch count in all chains are 8-8.
  • If using two colours, you will need to do a shoe lace trick (SLT) to keep the two floating rings (green) the same colour.

Daisy Picot Star

Okay, this is awkward.  My memory is failing me.

Have the pattern for this star been shared before?


I designed this when I was learning the daisy picot and that was in 2006!

I was going through my old patterns in my files and found this. It is possible that I saw one with similar design by another tatter and decided not to publish this.

Hmm .....

Going back in time, I ound my original post on this star here but no mention about sharing the pattern.

Happy New Year and a Winner

I know it is already into the 2nd week of 2017 and I have no excuses for the late new year greetings.
(Sheesh ..... I should write posts in this blog more often) 

Anyway,

December and into January was a rather busy month for me.  My daughter got enaged to be married, yeay! If you recall my post here, it entails some preparation for the ceremony required.  Unfortunately, there aren't many many pictures taken of me during the ceremony because I had not been well and I didn't look good to be photographed, :(

The week following the ceremony, we had workers come in to do some renovation to the house.  The knockings and bangings and drillings just did not give the right mood for thinking straight.  I sure need to think to write a meaningful post, ha ha ha ....

However, remember my previous post which mentioned about this blog being nominated by Craftree in the Best Tatting Blog category?

Guess what?

I won!!!

And, I was a month late in finding that out. The results were announced in December and I thought it was in January.  Well ... as mentioned above, December was a busy month and it slipped my mind.

So, late though it is, I wish to thank Craftree members for nominating my blog and all the voters who took time to vote for me.  Thank you for remembering me eventhough I did not update this blog reularly.

Congratulations to all the deserving winners in the other categories.
Well done to the other nominees. They are also winners in my eyes and in my heart.  The full list of winners and nominees for the Craftree Awards 2016 is here.

p.s.  This is photo-less post.  All photos are in my phone and I have not copied them to my laptop. Sorry about that.
