Nellie Youngburg's motif 37 in TatHelper

Nellie Youngburg wrote a wonderful book of tatting with many tatted motifs, but she did something else, she combined those motifs to create different works.

The edgings 3 and 14 were reused to create a Camisole York.

The camisole is made with 18 motifs, each one with 8 onion rings.
