Tina Frauberger Crowns

I have completed the Bookmark of Tina Frauberger Crowns which was revisited and revised by Robin  Perfetti. The original pattern was published in Schiffchenspitze in 1919 and can be downloaded for free from here. Robin has reworked the pattern and provided drawings and sequence and can be found  here.

Thank you Robin for your hard work and sharing.  I used Omega thread size 30 and purposely used two different colors to practice the Catherine Wheel Joins used in this pattern. I don't know why I avoided learning this join for such a long time, you can find instructions  on Jane's blog of techniques.

Below is a row of Tina's crowns done in size 40 and should be sewn on my cap as I completed it quite some time ago.  The crown pattern has been reworked by Frivole and her comments can be found on her blog here.  


These little Tina's Crowns were my first attempt at using two shuttles and throw rings.  It was only with the tips and encouragement from my  online tatting friends that I was able to complete them.  





How blessed we are in the tatting community to have such talented artists.

  1. Very impresive: thrown rings and Catherine Wheel Join all in one project. Great job. I am struggling practicing the Catherine wheel join and find it very fiddly.

    1. Thank you. Using the two distinct colors assisted as I switched shuttles again and again to complete this bookmark.

  4. Lovely rendition and great choice of color. This bookmark was also my first time using the Catherine Wheel join. I seem to only have incentive to learn new techniques when I am modifying or creating designs. The Frauberger edging was great practice, but so slow to tat!

    1. Thank you Robin, how do you do it, create and learn at the same time. I see something I would like to tat and then need to learn a new technique so that I can do it. on the creatiive side, I usually have more ideas than time for execution. Enjoying your patterns, keep them coming.
