Sue Hanson's Snowflake with Block Tatting
Troy Flake by Sue Hanson © 2000
This was designed for Dorothy Peacock’s Flake appeal for “Troy 2002”.
2 Shuttles wound Continuous Thread Method
Sample worked in Manuela #20
The 6 petaled centre is worked first, making the last a split ring.
Then a round of chains with rings thrown off with Sh#2,
again making the last ring split. Commence the last round
with a split ring and then chains working the blocks.
I lock the chains on the last row with the first half of a double
Stitch UNFLIPPED, before & after each block and I also use it
to as a turning stitch while working the block.
NB: Tension chains before making lock stitch.
Remember to make a long picot at the end of the first row
of one of the blocks for the hanger.
The Block technique is covered in:
Judith Connors “Tatting Adventures” page 42
Judi Banashek “Advance Tatting Patterns p 77
Pam Palmers “Tatting Treats 2” page 12
The original sample had 10 ds surrounding the central flower - in
retrospect I’ve altered it to 9.
Many thanks to Sue (and Dorothy) for sharing this pattern with the Online Tatting Class
