tears of joy

 Oh yes, tatting brings tears of joy sweeping aside all those moments of frustration so that we plunge into yet another project! In this case, I continued tatting and look how the first part/row looks! 

This is #18/a pattern from Endrucks' 1920 book. I have deliberately curved it because these bright colours and pattern make me think of a broad necklace. 
Of course, it needs beads and imagine it in gold metallic thread! 
The 4 horizontal yellow rings along the top edge can be smaller with 4 less stitches to ensure the curvature remains in place. Or replace them with crystals!

Just the block tatting segments can be worked into an accompanying bracelet!

In Anchor Pearl Cotton size 8, the necklace is 4.5cms broad and 19cms wide.

So are you inspired? You can find the modern-style pattern (worked and diagrammed by Paola Bevilacqua - thank you, Paola💖) and much more from the Endrucks 1920 Project doc here. I will also be presenting this later within the larger #18 pattern, in a slightly different format; 4 rows tatted continuously.

    1. I am trying to imagine all the different ways beads, pearls, crystals, gems can be added, and their placement and colours, Margaret 😃💖
