I found this pattern here on Своими руками which I can't identify in language. The diagram shows the sequence of tatting and I was able to figure which rings and chains to match to the directions. I didn't tat the antennae - I just left them as threads. It looks very similar to others I have tatted but I couldn't tell you exactly where from right now.

The white thread is some that was on a shuttle from this woman. The yellow varigated is some I dyed a several years ago. Since I didn't follow the exact sequence by tatting the antennae first and last, I had a little glitch there in the center. It laid flat when I tied it off and I haven't blocked it because I know the yellow will run when I wet it and I didn't want to get the iron out. LOL! It was just a quick project to relax me and I didn't want to go to a lot of trouble. I have plenty of other tatting I will get to at the weekend which is a bit more serious.

That's my little bit of getting-ready-for-Spring!


  1. wow...cute and pretty

  2. I made this one a few weeks ago. It's from a Russian book called "Frivolite" but I don't have information of the writer or year of publication. The book has some lovely collar patterns too.

  3. Gina,
    this is just lovely; and, very spring like. I am totally ready for spring! All we have so far in the far southwest is the wind....
    Best wishes,

  4. super cute, I like it.

  5. Hi Gina, I really like your butterfly, I zipped over to the pattern and have printed it out.
    looks easy enough to do on the plane at the end of next week.
