Tatted Iris

Here is the iris that I have designed to add to my latest book Tatted Flowers From Bulbs.
Most flower patterns only take me two or three goes to get the effect that I am looking for, but this one!!!!....well I certainly got through a lot of cotton before I was satisfied with the end result!
I think the main problem was, there were so many variety variations of the flower, that coming up with something that actually looked like an iris, but was also easily achievable for the tatter, was quite a challenge!
What do you think? Would you recognise it as an iris?

Bulb Flowers So Far

Here is a picture of the flower patterns that I have done so far, for my new book
Tatted Flowers From Bulbs.
I think that the next pattern will be one for Iris and then one for Amarylis (maybe LOL!)
Also, I will have to do some leaves, although the pattern that I have done for the hyacynth leaf could simply be elongated for the daffodils and bluebells and just about the same length for the crocuses!
