This is where I'm going to release a pattern in 'bits'.
The worker will not be told what the finished piece will be although they may well be able to start guessing after a week or so!!!
Hopefully feedback will be useful to both myself and to the worker and from this I hope to develop my pattern writing style.
One of the new things I will be 'testing' for the worker is front side/back side tatting 'made easy'. By using italics whenever the tatter needs to start with a second half of the ds in an element of the pattern I'm hoping it will be easier for those (like me) who are 'new to' this modern method of working. The second part of an SR will NOT be in italics as that is the normal way of making it.
For example, a ring (on the right side) will be in normal type but if it is then followed by a chain after reversing the work then the ds on that chain will be shown in italics.
I did think about using coloured typeface but then some people might prefer to print patterns in black and white. We'll see - hopefully feedback will show what is easier for the tatter.
