Today's flake is the "Criss-Cross Snowflake" by Frivole.
I often think that Frivole's snowflakes look more like real ones than most tatted snowflake patterns, and this one is no exception.
I used Lizbeth Blue Ice, number 163, in size 20.
I want all these snowflakes to be as close to perfect as I can possibly make them, so I've been using LadyShuttleMaker's very useful blocking template to block each of them. When using a template, you can get multiple uses out of a single print-out by covering it with waxed paper before you put the tatting on top of it. That way the template stays reasonably dry and doesn't get all wrinkled the way wet paper does.
