|Doily #29 from the DMC Book of charted Tatting Designs|
Hiding ends is something that I try to minimise when I tat. I try to tat-over-tails when I join new thread mid-work so I don't have to worry about hiding ends later. I just need to snip off the thread when I am done. Where possible, I will use the split chain and/or split ring to jump to the next round.
Back to the doily ....
This may well be my go-to tatting for now, until I come across something else.
You can see from where the thread ends are that this patterns begins at the small ring in the middle. If I were to tat this again, I will begin at one of the rings of the flower. There was a bit of manouvering needed when finishing at the end.
