I tatted this based on a pattern on page 25 in the Japanese pattern book 'Tatting Lace Accessories' by Emiko Kitao. Swarovski crystal pearls in two colours were used. Tatted using Lizbeth Size 20 threads in Vineyard Harvest Col. 131.
You could wear this as a necklace but I actually made this for my reading glasses. I was a little bored after tatting so many animals and a little frustrated with the last tatting attempt.
I thought I was half way through this pattern when I found a mistake and had to cut out the last repeat. Can you recognize the pattern designer? Hints - pattern can be tatted in one round; maltese rings; two colour threads.
This pattern by Ruth Perry was recommended by Muskaan. Thank you both. It was fast to complete and tatting the centre rings was interesting. Ruth's hedgehog was named Rainbeau as it was done in a rainbow colour threads. These two were tatted in blue Daruma Lace Size 30 and dark peach Flora Size 20 threads.
