This is my third book, and my second working on snowflakes. Actually, if you have been following my blog, you may have guessed it from the posts that I had put up over the past year or so, when I wrote about colours in tatting, or from this Posy post. This Winter Wonderland post and the Rainbowflakes are dead giveaways, I think.
Diane, Marty, Josie, Bonnie and Denise have tested the patterns for me. Thank you very much, Ladies. I made changes to to some of of the designs based on the comments and scans given by my testers. These are the final 18 designs available in the book.
The approach that I have taken for this book is to come up with designs that uses the basic techniques of tatting, i.e. the double stitch, standard rings and chains, regular join and lock joins. There are no split rings, split chains nor mock rings in any of the designs. However, there are a couple of designs that are a bit more involved while still keeping to the basics. But, I think I managed to put in enough twist and turns to make each one rather challenging.
I also wanted to come up with designs that can be tatted in one pass. I managed to do it for 14 out of 18 designs.
The patterns are both with detail instructions and charts. Those that are made in two or more rounds can certainly be done in one pass by utilising split rings and split chains. You may have to change the starting point of the respective pattern if you wish to do this.
The details on how to order is given on this page in my blog.
This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to all who have submitted their comments to be included in the draw. I will be making the draw to pick two winners as soon as I posted this.
