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 #17 – Flower Small Motif

This week’s pattern was created by Jane Eborall. It is a lovely flower motif and I have fallen in love with it. If you look to closely at my picture you will find my mistake. Personally, I think it turned out beautiful, but I could be biased as it was worked up in my favorite color and now I look forward to fall.  Be sure to check out Jane’s other amazing patterns!

It can lay flat (especially if you don’t make my mistake of adding extra stitches), but I liked the way it was naturally curving. I hope you have as much fun with this pattern as I did.
