... tatting patterns from Sophie T. LaCroix.
I tried a couple edging patterns in 2013. Link to post and photos HERE. Once finished (homework) Youngburg patterns, I thought I'd pull out the LaCroix edge patterns and try them again. The vintage patterns are great.
Edging or Insertion No. 1143. I used size 20 Lizbeth fiber. The top with 138 [greens] and 683 [yellows]. It is nice to have the green on one side and yellow on other - done by switching shuttles after each set of ring/chain. The lower 620 (pink) + 138 (greens) where I used the shoe lace trick to keep all the rings pink and chains green. Same pattern, different color results.
Edging No. 1114. I used size 20 Lizbeth fiber. The top 164 (teal/green mix) + 661 (teal), switch shuttles to keep colors separate at the top and bottom. The lower is done with 621 (pink) + 138 (greens) - to keep rings pink and chains green, used the shoe lace trick. Same pattern, both ways are pretty.
They are also found on line at the Antique Pattern Library. Link HERE.
I have been saving the little tatted samples. That way, when I want to use the edge in the future, I have piece in hand for reference.
