Here is the iris that I have designed to add to my latest book Tatted Flowers From Bulbs.
Most flower patterns only take me two or three goes to get the effect that I am looking for, but this one!!!!....well I certainly got through a lot of cotton before I was satisfied with the end result!
I think the main problem was, there were so many variety variations of the flower, that coming up with something that actually looked like an iris, but was also easily achievable for the tatter, was quite a challenge!
What do you think? Would you recognise it as an iris?
