Pattern's from a book, but also proposed in a magazine that I've had for 20 years and my copy is in Italian.
There's a light celtic effect in this pattern, a round with block tatting has to be tatted apart and then connected to the central flower. Of course they simply say "join the block". Of course they say nothing about the direction of the tatting blocks and looking carefully at the picture it seems they actually didn't care too much. I worked with 2 shuttles in "direct tatting" (that is tatting chains as they are the second part of the split ring) and I always kept the tatting already done under my shuttles. That was a good solution for me, I had very few glitches. But this pattern challenged me!
