Off the Shuttle: Tatted Floral Edging on Vintage Handkerchief

Another tatted edging for another vintage linen handkerchief. The pattern is "Floral Edging" by Robin Perfetti ( It's from her free pattern collection at I made one little change to the original pattern by using the same color for both the chains and the small rings. I think that makes the small rings look more like leaves.

I had thread left on the shuttle from another flower-edged hanky so I went with the same colors. 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 blue linen handkerchief is from my stash of vintage hankies and at one time had flowers painted in the corners. Over time they have faded to faint shadows that can be seen in the closeup above.

The edging looks great, and I love the change you made. I hadn't thought about making the small rings in green...they do look like leaves!
