New Original Tatting Pattern: Daylily Dance


My new original pattern is done! 

I've listed the PDF in my Etsy shop

It's actually triangular motifs, each inspired by colorful daylily flowers such as this. 

There's a good measure of "cut and tie" as each motif is made in 3 rounds. The triangles can be joined together along with the narrow filler motif to create larger projects. I joined 6 of them to make the doily featured.

In size 20 Lizbeth each triangle motif measures about 3 and 3/4 inches (9.5 cm). 
In size 10 Lizbeth each triangle motif measures 5 inches (12.7 cm). 

The doily shown is in size 20 Lizbeth thread and measures 7 and 1/2 inches (19 cm) across. 

The tatting techniques used: ring, chain, picot, floating ring, join, lock join, lock stitch. I've written the pattern from my shuttle tatting perspective, but I think needle tatters will enjoy it too. The pattern has diagrams also.

The color combination possibilities are endless!

It’s really beautiful. Interestingly, we call a different flower a day lily.
