Cross Celtic Dianna Stevens star[offsite link]
There has been some discussion on the Tatting mailing lists on the Internet about whether a needle is actually required for this complex design by Dianna Stevens, but I think it would certainly make the centre easier. This one requires some experience but is a wonderful design.

Cross David´s by Heather Johnston star[offsite link]

Cross Entwined Arms by Julie Patterson star[offsite link]
This pattern is from the newly re-released book of tatted crosses from Julie Patterson of Australia with 30 pages of large photos, easy to read diagrams and step by step directions. There is a list of illustrated abbreviations and her diagrams and explanations of the split ring, split chain, and crossed, beaded picots are excellent.

Cross Flavia´s by Edda Guastalla star[offsite link]
This beautiful tatted cross pattern is on Edda Guastalla´s site. Again the instructions are in Italian and there is no diagram but the photos are clear and as she uses notational instructions the pieces should be reasonably easy to make.

Cross Simple Gillian Buchanan star[offsite link]
This design was used in the Online Tatting Class recently, as it features the use of Shuttle Thread Joins otherwise known as Downward Joins. It is not particularly difficult to make otherwise although some of the finishing off is into rather tight corners.
