Let it snow let it snow let it snow.....

Since its that time again I too have been starting to make snowflakes. I generally cannot follow the patterns out there because my tatting seems to have a mind of its own. So usually play with my own patterns and stitch counts etc...
I got some hand dyed thread from Lark in Nevada, Ill find a link for her and put in in a later post. You can order HDT from her as well and she takes requests!!!
Here is some of the hdt in a snowflake I did.

Its a very simple pattern R 5p sep by 2ds cl rw, ch of 8ds between the rings at the top, 10 from the ring to the join and 15 from join to join. I pull my DS tight so it will be bigger if you tat loosely.

Here are a couple more Snowflakes I have done recently.




I started a pattern for a hat/bonnet. I got a request for it to be in pink and black.

Those are so pretty, and the bonnet looks really dramatic...I hope we get to see the finished article?

I particularly like the snowflake with the beads. It seems to make the tatting pop out more than without.

All of your tatting is so pretty! Rainbow colored HDT sure is in right now, regardless of the "dealer", LOL! The hat looks like it is progressing nicely.
