Here she is! After the holidays I am now embarking on the last side! This pattern has been fun, but quite a challenge, too.
The outside is worked first, so then you add the inside round as well as attach to the linen. The hankie that I'm using is Irish linen from hhtatting.com that you can view HERE. The holes are pre-made so there was a lot of math that went into figuring out how many little 'fans' go for so many holes and then I had to add in the corners too. Ugh!
So I figured the best way to do this is to work one side of the outside round first, end with a ring so that I can easy pick it up again with a Lark's Head Knot (hmm, maybe I'll have to do a post one that little trick!) Anyway, once one outer-round is done, I work the inside and attach to the linen at the same time. That way if there is any miscalculation, I can go back on just that side and not have to take out the WHOLE outside round.
So three down, one to go! It looks really nice and I am pleasently surprised that the color came out so pretty. The lady that is purchasing this hankie wanted to go for an antique-looking blue, and I do believe that Lizbeth's Wedgewood Light (#655) delievered perfectly!!!
