Shamrocks in many shades of green

Tatted in a variety of threads, using the Celtic knot from Rozella F. Linden's book Celtic Tatting Knots and Patterns, but this particular shamrock idea is my own. This shamrock pattern is written out on a previous post in my blog, but you'll need the aforementioned book for the instructions on how to weave the Celtic knot.

I'm so glad that March is finally here! Am looking forward to spring, but no signs of it here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin yet, we are buried deep in snow.

Now that I've finished writing up the "Fairest" collar and bracelet pattern, and finished a bunch of shamrocks, I can get back to hand dyeing thread. And, looking forward to March 11, the 2nd meeting of the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild!

I really love these shamrocks! I had trouble weaving Rozella's pumpkin pattern (never did accomplish it!) so I'm not sure I could handle this, but I really WANT to!

Wow!I've made your shamrock just few days ago! ^^
I love this pattern!

Here's my "secret" - I weave the Celtic knot backwards. What I do is turn it over when it's time to weave, and work from the paper clip end instead of the way it's shown in the Celtic Tatting book. That way I don't need a special shuttle and can continue the tatting after the Celtic knot.

Hope spring is around the corner for us too in the UK it's been a long wet cold winter.
