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 #21 – TARDIS

This week’s pattern was created by Anne Bruvold. Though most of us may not be lucky enough to travel through time and space in a TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space). We are all lucky that Anne has created this pattern so that we may have our own miniature TARDIS. This is for all the Doctor Who fans (past, present, & future – of course!). If you aren’t a fan, chances are high that you may know a fan.

We have previously featured two other patterns by Anne: Minor Norwegian Dragon (Challenge #2) and Ringtrim (Challenge #13).

Pattern: Tardis – http://www.nuperelle.net/motiver/Tardis_eng.pdf

This pattern contains one split chain. I had to look up the technique, because I haven’t used it in a while. I now realize I should get some additional practice with it.
