Tatted Hankies. 15/25

Its a rough day outside,  we have gale force winds and heavy showers at the moment but its going to get worse with severe weather warnings for overnight and tomorrow.   I am definitely staying in.

Today I thought I would show you my tatted hankies I have done,  the one above and the one of the left,    close up below,  was a pattern I liked from Mary link to her blog  Mary very kindly gave me the pattern and this is my efforts.
 I do like this pattern its quick and easy and can be done easily.
I used Turkish Altin Basak thread no 50 which I find very soft and easy to do hankies with.

 Remember this me tatting in Cyprus well this is the hanky I was tatting again I used Marys pattern but with a twist.
I did a chain of 4ds 3ps separated by 1ds,
 ring 2-2-2-2,
 chain 3ps separated by 1ds, 4ds.
Again I used Turkish Altin Basak no 50

I hope wherever you are, you stay safe in the bad weather.  until we meet again Take care


  1. I love all three hankies, but the 3rd is my fave..... I hope the weather does not get as bad as forecast, not bad here at the moment

  2. These are fabulous very windy here and waiting to see wast happens in the next 24 hours Ginny x

  3. So pretty and dainty! I like the way the rainbow colours are shown to good effect in the first two.

  4. beautiful hankies and delicate like the little tops you put on the white one! Wind is scary sometimes but it strengthens the trees, I don't live in a very windy place, and when we do get some bad winds the trees break easily and it's sad to see all the destruction done. Stay inside and tat :)

  5. wow wow wow!!!! Margaret, these are beautiful, I love them!

  6. wow wow wow Margaret, these are soooo beautiful, I love them!

  7. The edgings you have tatted are simple and elegant. They complement the hankies so well. The pastel colourway is perfect and the white - pristine. I am going over to Mary's blog to have a look too.

  8. That third hankie is absolutely elegant! Lovely.
