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 #13 – Ringtrim – a Microdragon

This week’s pattern was designed by Anne Bruvold. Anne’s Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon was featured as Challenge #2. Anne created Ringtrim for tatters to practice their tatted rings. This pattern utilizes both single shuttle split rings and split rings. The wing also allows tatters to practice throwing a ring off of a split ring. If you choose to work in a single color you can get away with just split rings, but I encourage you to make him as directed at least once.

A special thanks to Shuttlebirds Guild Member, Denice Lewis, for bringing this cute pattern to my attention! You can see several dragons Denice tatted and shared at our last guild meeting in the reader submissions section below.
