I tatted this as a Christmas Tree Decoration in an HDT called Rainbow Bright by Tatskool. She used Coats 60. In these colours it makes a lovely Tree decoration. The pattern is called Merryment doily and designed by Jon Yussoff
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
