Power of 3

The power of three because this pattern is 3p3. As the pattern is so easy to remember it gives me the opportunity to practice some frontside/backside tatting.   This is the trim for my second shirt and I am just over halfway done.

I am still using the King Tut thread it takes just a small amount of thread to do the trim and I plan to sew this one down along the collar binding.  This trim and the former  have used less than one bobbin of thread.

You can see a wide white elastic (I get these around broccoli and asparagus) around the spool of thread.  I use it to control how much thread unwinds.   I also use these wide elastics or rubber bands to grab the thread when I need extra grip.

  1. That's a good idea using the elastic. We don't have that round our broccoli or asparagus here. I'll have to look out for something similar!

    1. I'll put a few in my bag for you. :) You can grab the smallest tail of thread and pull it tight.
