Monday MONDO Giveaway Part XII

Tatted in size 20 "SUNSET CLOUDS" hand dyed thread.

Gwen's Angel




This is the pattern I taught at Shuttlebirds this year....and now I offer it to you for free. It has three different types of folded rings in it. It is continuously tatted with NO ends to hide. Whoo hoo...right?!?!?
It is worthwhile to mention that while I tat my folded rings just slightly differently, I by no means "invented" this technique. I will provide links for you to see how other tatters use their methods; Martha Ess, and Bina Madden.

This angel in named for Gwen Coen of Tatters across Time. It was she who challenged me to create this pattern.

As always, please leave a comment to just let me know that you have downloaded her.

Enjoy!!!

Count me among those who have downloaded this sweet angel pattern.
You are so generous to share it with us.

I was challenged by the folded ring in your treble clef, so this should be interesting with several folded rings, including split rings!

I'm impressed with your ability to use 'drawing' software. Your patterns are so perfectly done.
