TIAS - Day One - Natalie

You can find the pattern for day one here:

Today's pattern bit was very straight forward. The most challenging part for me in this section was the measured mock picot. It took me a few tries to figure out how to hold my gauge and get the distance right. I don't normally tat with picot gauges - so that may take some getting used to. The only thing I'm not happy with is that the first picot twisted - I'm hoping there is a join to that picot later on that will correct that issue. I don't have any guesses yet as to what the finished pattern might be.

So I definitely made 1/2" picots yesterday, using my picot gauge vertically. So with Sherry's announcement this morning that the picots should be 1/4", I had a bit of fun retro tatting. Each time I practice taking out a ring it seems to get easier. I managed to undo all of yesterday's work so that I could re-tat Day One. So here it is, in all it's 1/4" picot-y goodness.

  1. Thank you for stating where you are from Natalie! I think one of the greatest things about TIAS's is that it "tricks" people into trying things that perhaps they normally wouldn't!


Thank you for your wonderful comments!
