Things have been a bit quiet on the blog for a few weeks as I have been busy finishing Christmas presents and studying too. The two gifts have now been given to their new owners so I can show you them now.
The first one was quite quick to make. I used Bendigo Wool Mills Cotton 10ply to make this in threes cardigan for my niece.
The second one took a little longer as I hadn’t made a collar like this before. The vintage pattern is from a Coats learn tatting book no 660, and made is in Milford Mercerised cotton size 40, purple. I experimented with using crochet to attach the tatted collar as I went, and this required a little bit of retro-crocheting to make it sit properly and not pucker. The recipient loved it, and I hope she enjoys wearing it. I hope to blog soon about the process I used to make this collar.
Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season.
Until next time happy tatting,
