It was definitely time to tackle a larger tatting task than I had previously undertaken, so a doily pattern was chosen.
Debbie Arnold made this opportunity possible by kindly sharing her Purple and teal square doily pattern on the Web.
This pattern was interesting and enjoyable to tat. It gave me the opportunity to polish up on my 'unpicking' skills. It even gave me the opportunity to learn how to 'cut out' mistakes that were too large to unpick (twice!).
Debbie warns that rows 8 to 10 are 'count carefully rows'. And I'd like to confirm that she wasn't joking:)
I hope to come across other patterns that she has designed because her doily pattern keeps its shape nicely when completed.
