Motif # 3

I rediscovered the few balls of Opera thread I have in my Size 20 stash. It is a softer thread and just as much fun to tat with as the Altin Basak. I made this rose cross designed by Lily Qualls Morales with a few alterations to make it in one round.

I didn't have a pattern per se for Motif # 2. I used 5 ds between joins or picots for the chains and 2 ds between joins or picots for the rings. I think 6 ds would also work for the chains.

  1. I've never been too fond of Opera thread either but I might still have one ball. The cross looks nice, regardless of the thread!

  2. The cross is very pretty! I've never used the Opera thread. It is interesting how much difference there is between threads - I find I like different threads for different things.
