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 #8 – Tatted Cameo Pendant

This week’s pattern was designed by the talented TotusMel. She has a great designer eye and it is a delight to follow her work.

Pattern: http://totusmel.blogspot.com/2010/03/free-tatted-cameo-pattern.html

I don’t feel that I quite did her pattern justice.  It is so pretty.  I think I need some more practice with such a large ring (80 ds). It was nice learning how to make Victorian sets. I look forward to trying some of her other patterns in the future! This is definitely a pattern I will do again once I’ve had a bit more practice with Victorian sets. I had started out with size 20 thread, but I couldn’t get my ring to close. So I switched to size three thread and that made closing the ring easier.

Sorry the photo is a bit dark. I’ll try to take a better one later in the week when I am not under the weather.
