It's been a horrendously busy week, but I still managed a little tatting time! I love MK's Curds & Whey edging; it's a lovely straight piece that can be coaxed to a slight curve. And this made me wonder: could it turn a corner?
Yes, it can! And it's easy-peasy, too! When you are very close to your corner, make sure your next repeat has the small rings on the outside. Next repeat, make only 3 small rings inside. Next repeat (the corner) has the small rings on the outside: make 5 of them. Next repeat, make only 3 small rings inside. Now, you're back to tatting the pattern as written.
