At this guild meeting, I brought along a newly acquired book, Ostern - Easter Motives by Christel Weidmann. The beautiful tatted daffodils on the cover intrigued me and I decided to try one of the patterns at the meeting. Oops, I was at a loss as to how to start! Not much progress on that project! Later, I discovered features in the book that made the pattern easy!
- The small "Narcissus" I was trying to tat was a variation of the larger daffodil pattern, so some of the written instructions depended on techniques explained in more detail in the larger daffodil
- There's a glossary page with translations to English from the German abbreviations
The pattern is really very well written and a great design!
