Sample shown original size and tatted using three strands of DMC embroidery cotton for both the shuttle and ball threads.

Please note – this is NOT a beginner pattern. You should be reasonably confident with your tatting before you attempt this one.

This would have to be one of my favourite patterns to make up.
