My favorite square motif
This is my favorite square motif and finally I tried to work it: it is from the wonderful japanese book from Teiko Fujito, and I fall in love with it the first time I saw it in internet. Later I bought some tatting books without knowing exactly, what would be inside, and ... there I found it, my favorite square motif. I have an idea to use this square, which I realized in wool to make something very surprising. I had to make some corrections, perhaps first due to my way to tat, and surely second because of the use of wool. First I had to make 2 ds less on the long chains at the inner motif, because they resulted too loose, as you can see on the image, and in the next motif I will also make the joining one ds lower, so that it does not go over the flower motif, second I had to make the big rings on the outer round as chains, because the wool does not resist to the tension through such a big ring. I climbed up to the second round with a split ring. It is fantasic.
