"Pinecones" Pattern by Ben Fikkert

This was may second attempt at the netting part or as I call it "Pine needles"
This first attempt and the edges curled up the single thread measurement has to get longer on the outer edge of the curves, this part was not really mentioned but figured this out after 4 out of 5 rounds :(


So carefully removed  this mistake and started again :)

This is pretty after pinning out and my bit of hairspray, that will be washed out when done.


Have a wonderful day, and tat away :)

  3. You're very patient to work on a piece with so many bare thread spaces. Sorry to see you had to cut so much off :(

    I just had a look at the pattern in my copy of the book, and noticed that even the original has some issues with the thread spaces. You've done an excellent job with blocking, so hopefully that continues to work for the rest of the pattern.

  9. Wow, that is beautiful! The mignonette part looks like it took a lot of work to get the measurements right for each bare thread.
