I used The Tarnished Tatter's pattern for the Shimmer Snowflake, and only tatted rounds 1 & 2. I didn't really care for the look of the 3rd round but liked it best after round 2 so that's what I did!
Oh by the way if anyone is wanting to learn tatting I found a great site when I was pattern surfing! It's Tatted Treasure's Absolute Beginner Tatting Series! I thought the videos were really clear for teaching. She also has some Tatting Tips etc. on her blog that I found helpful too. For example the idea of using your stitches as a guide for your picots! (Tatting Tip: Default Picot Length) I wish it had been there when I was learning to tat! But it's still nice to have a good learning site or sites (I've learned from several) that you can reference if you forget something you previously learned and need a refresher. LOL
