Quantiesque With a Twist

Jon Yusoff's Quantiesque Snowflake again -- but this time with a twist in the chains leading to the outer clovers. I had to make the chains almost double length to do the cross-over for the twist, and I think they should have been still a bit longer. This twist makes the outer edge look more round with sticky-outy things. The original version has a nicer flow, but I think this is interesting. I used size 80 DMC tatting cotton in red and green, but to get it to shine added one strand of white rayon machine embroidery thread. I made another one with a green center and outer round but, somehow, got the twists backward on a couple of the ends. It looks odd, so I'm not showing it off.

marty, this snowflake looks nice to me. it's got a glittery shine to it, which is fun.

The twist looks very cool! I'd have never thought of that!

Nice twist and yes, I think a bit longer would make them more noticeable.
