This is another snowflake patterned after a snowflake I found at Snowcrystals.com. It's all done in one, with no cutting and tying between rows (or climbing out). It's quick and delicate and one of my favorite patterns I've designed so far.
This pattern was tatted with size 30 DMC Cebelia thread. It is beginning level and uses one shuttle.
