Words from the Knot House

Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly Challenge.  Each Wednesday we will be posting a link to a free pattern and challenging you, the reader, to try it.  In addition to the pattern link, we will post a picture of how our tatting turned out when we followed the pattern. Following the challenge, we will feature reader completions of past challenges.

Challenge Issued: Follow the linked pattern in any color combinations and thread sizes you choose.  [Variations of the pattern are welcome and encouraged.]  Then snap a picture and send it to sbspokane@yahoo.com with the subject line “Weekly Challenge” to see your completed work featured as part of next week’s challenge post. Be sure to include the name you wish us to list with your photo – we want to give you credit! [There is no time limit on sending in your picture – feel free to send in any weekly challenge pictures (from last week or weeks/months ago) and we will feature them as part of the next Wednesday’s post.]

Weekly Challenge #2 – Dragon:  Anne B. was kind enough to let us use, what is easily my favorite pattern, her delightful Flying Minor Norwegian Dragons (http://nuperelle.net/drager/monstre/MinidragerEng.pdf). If you are like me and diagrams aid you in your tatting, then be sure to check out the following thread on intatters.com: Dragon diagram pattern for Anne’s dragon (you may be required to sign up for the site to view the thread, but it is free to sign up and intatters.com hosts a wealth of tatting information and discussion).
