Spinning Wheel Reconsidered

It seems I spoke too soon about larger versions of Mary Konior's Spinning Wheel pattern not working out.  Mad Tatter, Alberta has made a version with 6 rings on Row 1 and 12 rings on Row 2 that looks very nice.  See her picture here.  There are more "bare" chains on the outer edge than the original pattern, but it still works.  Perhaps some intrepid tatter could work progressively larger versions to see how big they can be and still look good.  Not me though, I'm too busy tatting dragons.


  1. Dragons? Can't wait to see them. Mad Tatter did well with her colours too.

  2. I just finished a Glass Mat. Made it 5 to 10 ring ratio (http://phyls-handwork.blogspot.com/2013/04/glass-mat.html). I plan on doing another this coming winter making it much larger. Will post when complete.
