Off the Shuttle: Flower Edging for Linen Handkerchief

This is another edging a started a lonnng time ago and finally finished this week. The pattern is Karey Solomon's "Marigolds" from her booklet Tatting Elegant Edgings. The flower stems are formed by "bridging" over 3 strands of thread after the flower is tatted...something I've not encountered in previous patterns, but it gives a nice effect.

The green thread is DMC Cebelia, size 30 color #699. The flowers are variegated Valdani perle cotton size 12 in colorway M32 Jewels. The pale green handkerchief is from my stash of vintage hankies and is a linen fabric.
