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 email@example.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 #4 – 5 Point Celtic Motif:
This week’s challenge pattern was designed by Sue Hanson. According to Sue, this design has been made into Easter eggs, broaches, earrings, centers of crosses, decorated prayer caps, handbags, and more. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
This was my first foray into Celtic patterns and I love it. The pattern was easy to follow and the pictures of the individual rounds proved helpful. I’ve turned the one I tatted into a necklace pendant. I hope you have as much fun with this pattern as I did. Thank you Sue Hanson for sharing your pattern and letting us use it!
Shuttlebirds’ Reader Spotlight: This is where your tatting will be featured each week you contribute.
