Splendiferous Stephen’s Snowflake!

It’s always incredibly fun to find a new snowflake tatting pattern, and here is one that is very beautiful in its simplicity! This snowflake pattern is easy to follow and can be made in a variety of sizes. Give it a try and you’ll love the results!

This is a one-shuttle, one ball pattern, and the most complicated part of this pattern is probably getting all of the bare thread space (BTS) components the same ¾-inch length. For this, I highly recommend that you use a gauge, or make one out of something such as a piece of cardboard, a coffee stir stick, or something else you can think of to try and make sure all BTS’s are as close to equal as possible. 

You could also do a variation on this pattern by tatting longer or shorter BTS’s, although the recommended 3/4-inch length does seem to be perfect for this design.

Because of the BTS’s, you definitely will want to give these finished snowflakes a good stiffening after they are done.

Once you have mastered getting all of the BTS’s the same length, the pattern is a breeze. Give it a try and you’ll be hooked!

Here is the pattern link – note that the pattern for this snowflake is on page 4 of this pdf pattern booklet.
