As I want to tat leaves to use on my crazy quilts I started with this pattern. It is part of a larger pattern, a collar, and it resembles a leaf, at least as I see it. I used DMC pearl 8 in a vague color, extremely suitable for practise.
You see?? A leaf shape. I "only" have to adapt the pattern a little bit.
I tatted the "new leaf" in a cream DMC pearl 8. Does it look like a leaf or not?
