Frauberger Crowns

Needed to tat something quick so I could get the pumpkins off!  All finished now, Halloween things put away and pumpkins going in the compost bin.

So here is a pattern by Tina Frauberger.  I really like the shape of it though I find the size a bit big.  That center ring has 34 stitches in it!  And I don't like working with big rings or long chains.  I wonder if I should try keeping the proportions but making everything smaller....


Her book is interesting in that it has many variations on a theme.  These crowns are repeated many times with slight variations and in different combinations.  I will be adding to this for the next post, you'll see what I mean.

Best wishes,

  1. The pumpkins are already gone! Wow, we'll keep ours for the week. (It's colder here so they don't rot).

    I love the crowns. I can see a little girl with a headband with this on it for a crown of her own!

  3. Beautiful pattern, but I agree... rings that large would drive me crazy!

  4. Beautiful pattern but I also agree the rings being that large would drive me up the wall too.

    Would a smaller thread make them look smaller
    and make a neater edging.

  5. Hi all, as always, thank you for your comments. Fox, I tatted it in size 20 Lizbeth. But I've been working on a scaled-down version of it today so should have something else to show you soon.
