Tiny Tatted Snowflakes

from Elizabeth's Lace
(11) Name: 'Other : Tiny Tatted Snowflakes
Tiny Tatted Snowflakes

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Tatting basics (rings, chains, hiding ends)
  • Tatting with two shuttles

Pattern Description:

This is my own original tatting design, created as a pattern in pdf format. The pattern is for a tiny tatted snowflake - both a plain and a beaded version. In size 20 thread, the snowflakes are around 1" - 1 1/2", and in size 100 thread, about 5/8".

I would call this an intermediate level tatting pattern that uses two shuttles, rings, chains, picots, joins and beads (optional). There are no tatting instructions, but the bead work is fully explained and fairly simple - why not try your hand at a little beading in your tatting!

The written long-hand instructions are in English. The pattern contains a close-up scan of the snowflakes, as well as a pictorial diagram of the snowflake with the stitch count.

The pattern file size is approximately 139 KB, and is in pdf format. It is necessary to have Adobe Reader on your computer in order to open this file, but you can get that program for free at
