Christmas in July

 Try spicing up old snowflake patterns with Josephine Knots. 
                   Keep in mind everywhere you have a chain you can add a elegant Josephine Knot.
                                          If you want one on a ring make it a false mock ring.
 I have a You tube demo of Josephine Knot  they are easy to do just make them very loose for that big dot look I am" Madtatter80" channel on you tube.                          
                                  I think these knots look like a different kind of lace altogether.


  1. Great idea, and I love making Josephine knots!

  2. I love what you did with that! Gorgeous! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. :)

  6. Hi Carollyn, thank you for the comment on my blog. I have added your blog to my list. You have some very good information with your pictures. Thanks for letting me know you have a blog.
    JK knots will change the look of any item.

  7. That is a nice video, Carollyn! I lovethe way you explain the technique and I see Josephine knots in a different light now. I used not to like them.
    I like those on your strawberies, of course!

  8. Thanks for dropping by today, Carollyn! Your tatting is beautiful. I'm working on a Christmas stocking - my first attempt at Fair Isle knitting and I keep thinking about tatting a dangle for it. Nothing as challenging as these beautiful motifs though! I added you to my blog roll and look forward to seeing more of your tatting.
