Milkweed Pod tatting pattern

 My original design, inspired by nature: Milkweed Pod in tatting. 

This 3 dimensional pattern is a good challenge for experienced tatters who are not afraid of split rings! ☺

Of course I used artistic license and made my pods very colorful! I used a different color for each step in the pattern to make it easier to follow, but naturally the pod will be lovely in a single color as well.

The tatted "seeds with fluff" are at the stage where they are just beginning to emerge from the pod. Do feel free to use your imagination and use other items inside the pod!

I've been told that at an earlier stage in the pattern, the unfinished pod resembles a leaf.

The PDF pattern is listed for sale in my Etsy shop and also my Craftsy pattern store.

You have the most wonderful ideas! I could look at a milkweed pod all day long and never figure out how to tat one. That is why I purchase your patterns! :-)
