I have now tatted the same snowflake pattern in each of the 3 styles of metallic and want to show you the differences. I used Lizbeth white in size 40 for each of these.
If I figured correctly before, using the #4 with the Lizbeth is about a size 20, and I thought the #8 worked up as about a size 15, the DMC is somewhere between.
The color is different too as you can see in the scan above.
I pulled small snips off each so you can see the differences a bit more.
|left to right...... #4 ........DMC ...........#8|
The snowflake made with the #8 isn't finished because I ran out of the filament. There are only 10meters of braid on the small spools. This was the amount left after tatting the snowflake in the post below. With the #4, I made the snowflake in the post below and the 1 here. So I got 2 out of the 11 meter spool. There are 40 meters on the spool of DMC.
