This first snowflake is the Kim Picot Snowflake. I had never seen nor tried this technique before, but I rather like the effect. It is also called a Triple Picot. Slightly fiddly if you don't have a Picot gauge (which I don't) or any kind of handy object to measure with...it's a bit of a trick to figure out the length each time. I think it would be wise of me to find some object to use as a gauge the next time I tat this one.
This snowflake Sally Magill calls the MHC Snowflake. I really like this one, a quick little tat, have made 3 of these thus far. I was tatting on the plane while traveling with both of my daughters this past week, so this was a fun little snowflake that didn't take much concentration and really had no chance of one's losing one's place in the pattern.
Both flakes are tatted is size 20 white LizBeth thread. These are both unblocked, not pressed, straight off the shuttles...and I don't really think they need anything done to them...they are lovely as they are. I will count these as numbers 18 and 19 in my 25 motif challenge.
