Bermuda makes a perfect chrismas gift !

I have a book full of tatting patterns which I have bought ages ago when I was in my home country. The patterns don't have much description and I usually get into trouble tatting them. This time I jot got inspired by one of the motifs and tried to design my own! Guess what..Bermuda was born ! :)
Then I tried it on a pink slippers and I loved the outcome :) I think it really makes a perfect gift for Christmas !
I have put the pattern here for those interested in making it. It took me a long time to draw the pattern and yet it could have been smoother. I am not sure whats the best way to draw my patterns. How do you draw your tatting patterns ? Is there a software you use ? Leave me a comment and help me out please !
This pattern is made of two phases.
1.a - Ring 3-3-3
1.b - Chain 8
1.c - Ring 5-5-5-5
1.d - Ring 5-5-6-6-5-5
1.e - Ring 5-5-5-5
1. f - Chain 8
*Repeat steps above 3 times

2.a - Chain 3-5-5-5
2.b - Ring 5-5
2.c - Chain 5-5-5-3
2.d - Ring 5-5-5-5
2.e - Chain 3--5-5-5
2.f - Ring 5-5-5-5

  1. Thanks for sharing your original pattern ~

    I definitely want to give this a try

    Your results on the slipper, really make it look like little triangles - love the colorway!

  2. Oh, and I think a lot of Tatters use a software for diagramming?

    Me personally, I don't have a software. I will probably hand draw and scan.

    Whatever you did to diagram, it looks nice!

  3. This lady gives classes on tatting design and I believe teaches you to use a drawing program to save on design time. I have been waiting for her to start a new class so I can find out what it's all about. I contacted her May 30, 2012 at that time she did not have a new class scheduled. She told me to watch her blog for class updates. Here is the link.
