Etter en del om og men

er nuperellebrikken ferdig. Dette er bidrag nr 16 til 25 motivers alongen. Mønsteret et fra boka Tatting theory and patterns av Jan Stawasz. Garnet er Ören Bayan nr 50, et tyrkisk bomullsgarn som jeg likte veldig godt. Det er passe tynt og glir lett.

Mønsteret voldte en del problemer, det er lenge siden jeg måtte klippe bort og starte om igjen så mange gang. Det var som om logikken i mønsteret (antall knuter på de ulike delene) ikke passet med mitt hode. En tilpassing gjorde jeg bevisst, forfatteren brukte ikke et helt antall knuter mellom alle pikotene, noe jeg ikke liker. En annen gjorde jeg da jeg kom til borden rundt og oppdaget at jeg hadde brukt en knute for lite i en type ringer hele tiden, jeg fortsatte med den feilen.

Problemet er ikke at mønsteret er vanskelig, det er heller det at jeg ikke leste oppskriften nøye nok, noe som igjen kom av at antall knuter i buene stod ett sted i diagrammet, antall knuter i ringene ett annet sted. Det gjorde det lettere å lese mønsteret men vanskeligere å følge for meg. Jeg foretrekker diagrammer når jeg strikker mønsterstrikk, men når det gjelder nupereller holder jeg en knapp på bokstaverte mønstre.

Til tross for problemene med mønsteret, jeg liker det veldig godt, spesielt effekten med ringer av ringer som kommer fram etter hvert. Ser ikke bort fra at jeg kan finne det fram en gang senere.

English summary
My motif no 16 (this number is correct Sharon, there are two small motifs I’m not counting), a square doily, is done. The pattern is from the book Tatting theory and patterns of Jan Stawasz, and made in Ören Bayan no 50, a lovely Turkish thread.

This pattern caused me more problems than usual; it was as if the logic of the pattern (number stitches at the various places) did not fit my brain. I had to cut away a lot and start over several times. The cause is not a difficult pattern; I just did not read it properly. And it did not help that the number stitches was written in one area of the diagram for the rings and another area for the chains.

Even though I had problem with this pattern, I might use it again, and now I know I have to read it thoroughly. I love the rings of rings that appear in the corners of the small square motifs.

That is so pretty! I have known that tatting existed for a long time but have never really checked it out. I'm going to have to get a good how-to book and give it a try!

Oh, I've had the same problem with reading Jan's patterns but this is so beautiful, it is well worth the effort. I know now to review the numbers on the diagrams before I start and fill in the gaps with my pencil. LOL! Lovely work!

Hi Ann, Could you tell me the color number you used for the Jan doily. IT is so very pretty. And the color thread you used is so much like something I would tat with.

The colour is no 012.
