Some of my patterns

I got excited

At my age even waking up in the morning is exciting. Never know what the day will bring and I certainly didn't on Saturday when I saw Carollyn's blog post.

It got me thinking and getting the beads out too!!! I had to try this idea. I did find some extra hints that I found useful like making sure the loop was behind the core thread etc. Anyway it was a good excuse not to weed the garden (also it 'looked' like rain yet again) so I sat down and did a technique page on it. 


Hope you don't mind, Carollyn but couldn't find an email address on your blog to contact you!!!

  1. I enjoyed reading Carollyn's blog post and wondered if anyone would diagram her idea. Thanks, Jane!

  3. Thanks, I love the diagram and you do that so well :) I do need to put my email on the blog information area and hopefully I will get around to it. I so glad you like it enough to add it to the tatted recipe collections :)

    1. I just viewed this and she has the idea but has not used the chain thread she is using the ends of the knot its the same but did not point out or say that you can use the chain thread.

  6. I often struggle with the usual method for adding a bead to the center of a ring. I'm planning to give this a try!

  7. I am always surprised at how many ways there are to manipulate a shuttle in tatting! Thanks to Carollyn for the experiment, and to you, Jane, for your amazing drawings! I'll be trying this out!
