On the Square!

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.

You can even make a small square!


  1. Intriguing. You've got a clever brain cell 3 there!

  2. There is no limit to your creative brilliance. I know this as surely as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west.

    If only I had been smart enough to tap into that brilliance during Tat Days, by asking for a 15- minute demonstration of SCMRs...*sigh*

  3. You've got me blushing!

    Maybe we can do another road trip next spring sometime - maybe meet somewhere a little closer to you?? I'll go look at the map...
