Pink Chrysanthemum Doily

Recently I bought some gorgeous solid coloured thread.  My only problem was that I found I like tatting with sized 40 thread and most of my new purchases were in size 20 thread!  Luckily some of them were sized 80 thread :).

I was keen to tat in a new colour so decided to tat this gorgeous Chrysanthemum doily from Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson.  This was a fun and easy pattern to tat.  Will have to tat this pattern again in two solid colours or a smaller sized thread :).

Pattern Name: Chrysanthemum
Book: Tatting Patterns and Designs
Designer: Gun Blomqvist
Thread: Lizbeth
Size: #20
Colour: #617 Magenta Medium

That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Jenn :). 

P.S. This book can be purchased from the Book Depository here (free postage worldwide) or it can be purchased as an eBook from Kobo here.


  1. Lovely ! This is a beautiful shade of pink .
    Glad you are enjoying size 40, too :-)
    I have this book for quite a while now (for the Lucky Clover Doily), but still haven't gotten round to doing a single pattern :-(

    1. Thanks muskaan :). LOL I purchased this book for the Lucky Clover Doily too :). I am hoping to tat the Lucky Clover one day :).

  2. That is gorgeous!!! :) Pink isn't my color, but that sure is beautiful!!! :)

    1. Thanks Sue :). LOL normally I wouldn't buy pink either but I bought it to tat something for my pink girl :). Also bought a ball of purple thread :). Rest are in blues/greens :).

      I thinking of framing this and putting it in my pink girl's room :).

  3. It's beautiful. Such good negative spaces.

  4. Lovely and also the colour. I'm the "pink girl" in my family, with 2 sons!
