Clover, Lily

Lizbeth size 20, color 631

Lizbeth size 20, color 631 + size 80, color 168

Lizbeth size 20.

I was interested in the picots on corners.  Bought the booklet from etsy seller in Japan.

I received this nice sample from Handy Hands.   The Helping Hands Newsletter had oodles of tempting patterns.  lovely tatted edges.  

I found this pattern book at local antique mall.  I struggled w/medallion pattern on pg. 14.  The photo is not clear.  Seems the number of ds changes in the pattern - even tho the motif looks like it should repeat.

This pamphlet is listed on the Antique Pattern site - however, there are no scans of the pages.  This is a diagram I made up.

I tried tatting with the different ds counts - and it was a challenge.    It is supposed to be tatted w/size 70, I used Lizbeth size 20-color 168.

When I tatted again, I alternated the different ds counts and used lizbeth size 80.
