I promised that my next post is going to be tatting,
And this is what I came up with.....
And here's the pattern....
Wind Two shuttles-CTM
Ch20, vsp, 2nd stitch of ds, 2nd stitch of ds,
(this makes the chain turn)
continue to ch16, join to picot of ring
Place marker thread on core thread
Place 2nd marker on core thread
join at 2nd marker place
(core thread to core thread)
(To create space between the stitches for the join pull on the marker thread a little, remove the marker thread and join. Insert hook in the space created, pull up a loop of the core thread & pull the shuttle through the loop)
( I used a thread as a marker but definitely you can use a safety-pin or a paper-clip)
ch6-10, Join at 1st marker.
ch10-16, Join at vsp of 1st chain
Ring 14, join to picot on last chain, 14, close ring,
Repeat from * to *
In the subsequent repeats make a join at the the place for the 1st picot of 6-3-6 to the 2nd picot of the previous 6-3-6 ch.
And join the chain while coming up to the picots as in the picture below
The next ring is joined to the last picot on the ch 10-16
Make 10 repeats
and in the last repeat join to the picots as you come up the work,
ch20, cut and tie at the top of the 1st ring, hide ends.
CTM- continuous thread method
vsp- Very small picot
ds- Double stitch
rw/RW- Reverse work
SLT- Shoe lace trick
