Two versions of "Masquerade" from Mary Konior's "Tatting with Visual patterns". Size 20 AIDA
The pattern is the "Occasional Doily" on page 13 of "Tatting Doilies and Edgings" edited by Rita Weiss.
These doilies are the same pattern, in slightly different cottons, done 10 years apart. Amazing what a bit of practice will do, eh? =) Incidentally, it's also in the Paragon Tatting book 112 ( more like a pamphlet )- "New Modern Tatting Designs". The top one is one of the first doilies I ever tried, in size 20 Coats cotton ( I think ). The bottom one I did about 10 years later, in size 40 DMC ecru.
This is the forerunner to the Green Celtic doily further up the page. Changing the colours as well as interweaving things differently gives yet another effect.

|"Distinctive Doily" out of one of the |
From Rosmarie Peel's Tatting Basket site.. It used to be at http://www.lacet-pubs.demon.co.uk/tatmat.htm , but it's now another dead link. Did this one for a friend who (a) thought it would look great under one of his dragon statuettes, and (b) didn't want it too frilly. Hence not a lot of picots. =)

Unfortunately I seem to have misplaced the pattern for this one.... but it's either from a Rita Weiss edited book or an Ann Orr. This was an experiment with size 100 cotton.
Mary Konior again.... This one's "Carnival" on page 48. It's done in size 12 DMC perle cotton, white and no.932.lte
