Jane's Peace Dove
Jane Eborall's pattern website.
Pattern note: make the picots large enough to carry a seed bead, unless "vsp" is indicated, because many of the picots joining rings have seed beads on them.
I made the dove pictured as a donation to a "peace" Christmas tree project at the church that I attend; they are decorating one of the trees entirely in peace dove ornaments, both purchased and handmade. It's a large tree and the size requirement for ornaments was at least 3 inches, so the dove tatted in size 10 thread fit the requirement. I painted on a fabric stiffener to make it stiff enough.
Sorry for the confusion on my previous post, but designing is at least 90% confusion! I was excited about a tiara idea briefly, but experimenting brought out various problems which I won't bore you with here. No tiara. But, I am making progress on the necklace. I think, possibly, it will be very lovely! No photos of it yet, I am still working out the math.
