This is another example of my design in placing beads throughout an ornament when none are in the original design. I used Lene Bjorn's book "24 Snowflakes in Tatting", and this pattern is called "The First day of December". I love the bright colors in variegated threads that are available and this one is HHLizbeth size 20 in color #118. There is a single 1/4" metallic gold bead tatted into the center and 1/8" gold beads on the shuttle thread and placed on picots between rings. It was rather difficult keeping track of where I was on the pattern. The motif measures 4 3/4" in diameter.
