This pattern is from "free tatting patterns" It was confusing. I got some help from Patty D (thank you Patty), for part of it. That helped a lot. They should have said to use two shuttles. And it would have been better if it had been in actual numerical order. That's where Patty came in.
- Batty Tatter
- I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

These guys are from Pam Palmer's book Tatting Treats 2. The all green one is the first one I tried and he has a small mistake. So I tried again. I needed some variety, so froggie 2 has a bit of pizazz. I dreamed up the little dragon flies myself, as I needed little ones.

Well here's what I've been trying to make. I made a mistake. I was supposed to have 8 picots on the inner ring and I'd only put on 7. So I had to fudge. But, as least I've got the pattern figured. I want to make another and make it right. But I doubt I'll ever make it small enough for a big button. That super fine thread is very twisty.
