What are you most proud of?
I tatted these in size 40 thread, which is a little smaller than my "comfort zone".
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Here's the pattern for the pointed snowflake with double picots. It's made using one shuttle and the ball thread.
Wind 2 yards onto the shuttle, leaving a continuous thread between shuttle and ball.
Start with a self-closing mock ring (a chain with a large loop left at the beginning):
3 --3 - 3 -- 3 - 3 -- 3 - 3 -- 3 - 3 -- 3 - 3 -- 3. Put shuttle though the loop at the beginning, and close the mock ring.
Lock stitch to form 6th small picot.
* Ch 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. Do not reverse work.
R 4, very large picot (about an inch or more when open), 2, join into the picot to form double picot, 4, close ring. Do not reverse work.
Ch 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. Lock join to next small picot of mock ring.
Continue in same manner from * until you have all 6 points of the snowflake.
