Tulip - Edited Version

I decided that the yellow tulip was not really deep enough and so have edited the pattern to give an extra row of rings and chains on each petal.

This time I have done a two colour flower as tulips often have a very dark centre.
The centre chains are made with double double stitches to give extra support to the flower without having to wire the petals, as I did with my very first tulip pattern in my book From Petals To Pearls. This makes for a much easier way to assemble the finished flower!

Adding the darker color definitely makes it better.

Linda, The work you are doing on the flowers is amazing. A bulb flower that I think would look nice tatted is the Cayla Lily.

This is lovely. I, too, prefer the two colours with the dark centre. It really is beautiful work, Linda.
