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!

Tatted by Marie McCurry. This was done in Lizbeth, size 20, denim whispers.  This motif reminds me of Anne B's dragon face.  The triangles would make a wonderful doily. Check out her blog: http://westpinecreations.blogspot.com/

Weekly Challenge #3 – Triangular Motifs:  As I was searching for the free pattern to use this week I came across the DMC Library Tatting book on http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/. This book as well as many others hosted on the Antique Pattern Library website are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike License. The pattern that caught my eye was the Triangular Motifs (Plate IV, figure 23, p.37-38 of the pdf file).

It’s a simple motif that was tatted over and over.  For what I wanted to do, I only needed three repeats of the motif, because within the pattern – one of my fandoms was calling me.  I’m a geek and the triforce from the Legend of Zelda was plain for me to see.  So I quickly dug out my shuttles and filled them with a variegated yellow thread.

The motif pattern can be found in the above links.  I am copying it here in abbreviated format for those who prefer it that way.

I look forward to seeing what you create with this triangle motif!  Happy tatting!
