Last time I showed you a single square of Mary Konior's "Masquerade":
The pattern is from MK's book Tatting with Visual Patterns. It's one I've been wanting to make for a long time and just never got around to somehow. I love how new patterns are created where the individual motifs meet. Mary Konior's designs never cease to amaze me; most of them, including this one, use only the most basic ball and shuttle techniques, yet she was always able to come up with something new and different using these simple methods.
When you remember that this is going to be a coaster, you will realize that I must have used size 80 thread to make it small enough, and in fact it is just the right size for the square coasters I'll be using next. The threads are DMC 80 in colors 794 (the lighter blue) and 798 (the darker).
