Playing in the snowflakes.

I found a pattern I liked some and decided to work on it and make it more my own. Here is what I ended up with I really like how the tips of the snowflake are tipped and I get the curve just right. I like how it swirls. I have been counseled about posting things and not posting my pattern with it so I am going to include probably more information than yall ever wanted to know but here goes.

Here is one version of the written pattern I will include 2 for the sake of just being redundant. Muahahah! 
*R 2ds 5p sep X 2ds 10ds cl rw
ch 3ds 6p sep X 2ds J last picot of ring continue 13ds rw
R 2ds 7p sep X 2ds cl rw
15ds j last picot of last ch rw.
Repeat from * 5 times
and:  
* R: 2---2---2---2---2---10 cl rw
CH: 3---2---2---2---2---2---2 j(p on r) 13 rw
R: 2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2 cl rw
CH: 15 j(p on ch) rw * 5 x

And here is a visual pattern as well.

I do love the way this swirls! It's like tatting in motion.
Thank you for sharing your version of the pattern!

Oh, I like this. it's like a little stirry flurry of a snowflake!

Gina said...

I like this! I also like the one in your header. The large picots are very effective in both of these pieces. I think little tiny ones would not look nearly as good.

Lovely snowflake, it is delicate and flowing with the large picots. I also like the snowflake in your header. Very Nice Work!!!

Thank you for sharing!

Love your snowflake. Thanks for the pattern.

Beautiful, but the one that identifies your page is still my favorite. I like what Martha has done with the snowflake and a bangle.

This pattern is soooo beautiful! Thanks for the pattern and hope I can find time to make it yet this year.

Hi, I just wanted to tell you how much I like your snowflake and I love how Martha put it in a bangle too.

Martha said...

This was the right pattern at the right time, Mike. Isn't it fun to be famous? I like draping it over a ball ornament, and I would not have thought of that. so great to share ideas on the web.

You ALL have made my month. Thank you. I did this pattern, Posted it and then Heather sent me an email with the stitch counts. Asked me if she could publish hers and wanted my name. etc. Thank you Heather. I am still quite tickled that so many are wanting to try it. hehe. :D yeah!
Perhaps I will just start offering some for sale too. Have given almost all of the ones I did this year away so far. waiting on 3 envelopes to arrive at their destinations now. once that is done I can rest easy.
Martha, I hope you have a great time working over a ball ornament. I think you will love it once you see how it unfolds. :D
Blessed Yuletide everyone!
Mike.

hello, i would like do the snowflake, if it doesn't bother you, could you email me the pattern, because I can not view the picture. Thanks you

Msquared said...

Emi, please drop an email to me with your email address and I will gladly forward the picture to you. I recently had a problem with my phone and I believe that I have deleted all of my pictures inadvertently.
