Catherine's Blatterspitzen

This Blatterspitzen is the work of our fearless leader, Catherine.

These are her comments on it:

"I used Handy Hands Nr.50 tatting twist in a dark green and 2mm needles throughout. It was exactly 14" blocked."

"The pattern was very straightforward. I think this is a great learning/sampler/primer piece because each section uses a different stitch and it's a regular repeating pattern (which means mistakes are easy to spot). I wasn't sure about the dark color, since dark colors don't show off the stitchwork as well as light colors do. On the whole, though, I like the effect."

Catherine's Blattie is a great example of a smaller Niebling, well-knit and blocked. No wonder so many of us love those designs!
