patterns for the stars with tuft picots

I put two patterns in Flickr. Actually I put two new pictures, with visual diagrams, without the text. I save patterns in my notebook using a short text notation (for ex. the form R:4-4-4) but soon the page is a mess with text and crossed out text and what really helps me then is the drawing, otherwise I can't re-tat it! We have the saying "Chi non legge la sua scrittura è un asino di natura", that means - apart the rhyme - that who can't read their own handwriting is a stupid ignorant (poor donkey! the animal "ass" is the personification of the stupidity). Sometimes I feel dumb in front of some pages of my notebook!

You're welcome to check the link to my Flickr album in the patterns' page on the Menu-Bar or click here in this page above the title of this post.

I know that Flickr is not the best place where putting tatting patterns, it is an image hosting service but anyway my patterns are pictures, file format is jpg or png. I love Flickr because it grants a huge free space for the user; and other people than the owner (if he or she let you do it) can download the picture and if you like you can print it eventually. It's also a mobile friendly site, I love having patterns handy - of course also other designers' pattern. I've been over-using my poor smartphone, an old model but still working, slow but fine. Save the paper!

You are welcome to browse the set "patterns". There are my own ideas, maybe sometimes, despite many trials, I came out with something banal 😳 (((blushing))), but I've never copied. Please enjoy everything and I'll be very happy to see your tatting at some point, that is my reward. I don't sell patterns, you'll always find them there for free.

In case you're thinking that I've "just" been playing with Inkscape, I can assure you I've tatted. Nothing really original, only rings and chains but I made up the stitches' count... I'll tell you in a week.
