spirited seventeen

Pin It now!

When posting the pattern recently, I said I'd share some possible ideas from pattern #17 in a separate post. Well, this will be like a static slide show, without much text except for the idea. I hope you put on your coloured glasses to figure/pick out the possible images from this spirited #17!

Endrucks pattern #17 - possible ideas, adaptations, extraction, derivations 

By simply folding, removing 'unwanted' areas, and/or joining at appropriate points, a plethora of patterns are possible ...

1 - kimono
2 - Eskimo or gingerbread man

3 - wheelbarrow with flowers or prams with babies in between
Or Marilyn Monroe in her iconic flying dress image
The wheelbarrow and pram are what Ninetta saw! Took me a few minutes to extract those images.
This is the 2-repeat sampler I had tatted and have folded to create most of these other ideas .....

4 - yet another possible corner for a triangular motif or a square mat.

5 - is it a bird? is it a plane? is it a boomerang?!

6 - folded into a bow - good around the neck or waist,
to hold up long hair or decorate a gift!

7 - cat ears for Catwoman!

8 - a 3D crown or headgear

9 - mojaris (Rajasthani footwear) for men

10 - 2 grasshoppers munching their way through leaves! 
So what if they are the wrong colour?!

11 - 2 swans facing each other

12 - Reiko Akamatsu's rearrangement for a square frame

13 to17 - These have moved from the realm of ideas to patterns ....
Superimposed Square frame  -
Reflections motif and snowflake -

So, is it just me or could you spot the possibilities as well? Did you come up with something else? Do share.

  2. There seems to be no limits to these patterns, brilliant works

    1. We are trying to curb our imagination now, Margaret, 😜😁💕

  3. Wow!!! You sure came up with lots of possibilities!!! :)

    1. Have lace, will play 😜😁😃 Thanks, Sue 💕

  4. Such imaginative possibilities! No wonder, with such a complex pattern! When i look at the block tatting triangles and the parts below i see an angel.

    1. Oh yes, Lavi, those BT triangles make superb angel wings, thanks 👏😍💕

  5. Wow! Let's do the math, 43 patterns times thousands of possibilities, just counting only yours, lol... tatting is no more in danger as a lost art, I'd dare saying! 🥰

    1. Thankfully Maths is not my strong point otherwise the total number would scare me silly 🤣😁🙃
      The best part, Nin, is that I am still enjoying the tatting part and craving to try out ideas that don't stop invading but my readers must be getting bored 🤪❤

  6. Lots of ideas! Endless fantasy! Thanks for the inspiration, Muskaan!

    1. and Elena, this is merely for One pattern of the 43 (as Ninetta pointed out) 😁😲🤩 Your designs and works are equally inspiring 💕
