Tatted Butterfly with Cluny Leaves


Butterfly with Cluny Leaves by Dagmar Pezzuto

This is a pattern by Dagmar Pezzuto from Brazil. She has designed a butterfly with uses the tatted cluny leaf in the wings. It is an intriguing pattern which calls for concentration!

For those tatters who would like to review the basics of cluny or petal tatting please see: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art37349.asp

I first encountered "cluny" or "petal" in Aunt Ellen's "Tatting Handbook" A Treasury of Techniques and Projects (a Workbasket publication.) Many were the times that I would wrap my hand for the loom, stick my tongue in the left side of my cheek and give it a try. Personally I called it "death grip tatting". Eventually I was able to manage it but my first attempt at a real motif using cluny tatting was less than perfect.

But don't be daunted by that. We all need to learn new techniques and you will enjoy this one soon.

Please email me at http://www.bellaonline.com/about/tatting for a color photo of the model.
