Wolfgang (also an In Tatters member) kindly wrote up a pattern for it and here is a fragment which I started. It's a great pattern, done in one pass but with a good width so you could work up a doily quite quickly. As always, we want to credit the author but he/she needs to be found!
Motif no. 21
|Tatted in DMC Babylo size 10|
Here is the picture of the pattern:
So can anyone out there can help us solve the mystery?....
Oh, and I've learned something new: a different method to start on a chain which I like better than the paperclip method. I will ask the author if I can share here and hopefully be able to show you soon.
