Easter Eggstravaganza 11!

Tatted Easter Eggs by Kirsten Wind Hansen
On to number 11
This looked easy until I took a closer look at how it was was just a bit tricky to keep one stitch flipped...nuff said...!
Tatted in Flora 20 I used beads from my selection pack of silver lined size 8 beads.
I thought that I had chose all turquoise beads until i came to tat in the daylight last weekend...more about that later!...and found that there were two different greens also in I continued in the same vein to make it look natural!
Haven't got round to tatting this one again either...but it would look lovely in.....and.....and......


  1. Your tatting is so precise that each motif (egg, critter, edging, what-have-you) looks lovelier than the last. I am undone!

  2. OK, here is the one I'm working on now. Have never put beads on this way, so wondering how to do it that is best. On the picot where the bead goes, do you go ahead and put the bead on and then put s clip or something there to make sure it's the right size? That is what I'm doing right now on my first one. A small paper clip is what I'm using....already trying to think if I have knitting marker that would work!

  3. It's very easy once you get used to it. I don't leave a marker on or even use one. I just make sure the picot is big enough to get the bead on and keep my crochet hook inserted to make the join. Then make all the other joining picots the same size either by eye or by picot gauge. Keep the picot size as small as you can to get a snug fit.

  4. This is really interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger. I have joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your excellent post. Also, I’ve shared your website in my social networks!
