Shuttle tatting for needle. Free snowflake sample.
I am often asked if it is possible to use patterns for a shuttle when working with a needle, or vice versa. Yes, of course, such patterns have very small differences. And now I will try to show you these differences.
I created a snowflake especially for this article. The pattern is free, of course. And you can download the PDF file by following this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mCDpG2BoPI2bjJsbvNeosO8ogF3glaGj/view?usp=sharing
Hopefully this will be a nice gift for all tatters (no matter what tool you use!)
So, you’ll need a white thread (thread thickness doesn’t really matter, but I used # 40), a shuttle or needle (whichever you prefer), a crochet hook (for easy and neat connection), and scissors. You can also use a 4, 6, and 8 mm picot gauge. Also, you may be interested in reading an article on my blog about which picot gauge I use.
I have divided the page into three columns, as you will see next. In the left column there is an instruction for the shuttle, in the right one for the needle. The central column is occupied by graphic diagram and photo of process. Thus, you will clearly see that the same pattern is used for both methods.
By the way, I didn’t think of a name for this snowflake. Please write your options in the comments!
If you have any questions, I will answer in the comments without fail.
Hopefully this makes it easier for you to navigate the patterns. After all, we examined in detail the topic this theme!
