Day 3

Take care today - this is slightly different from the last two parts!!!
Abbreviations for today!! R: ring. SR split ring Cl close SS switch shuttles RW reverse work

NB – Don’t forget the italics (red text) are for those who like to do ‘front side, back side’ tatting and show where you need to reverse the order of working double stitches. This does not apply to the second side of a regular split ring.

Between all the rings leave a small thread space roughly ⅛”
SR13: 6 – 2 / 6 – 2 Cl

R14: 2 + (SR13) 6 – 6 – 2 Cl
R15: 2 + (R14) 6 – 6 – 2 Cl
R16: 2 + (R15) 6 – 6 – 2 Cl RW SS
R17: 2 + (SR13) 6 – 6 – 2
SR18: 2 + (R16) 2 - 4 / 2 + (R17) 6

Jane! Thank your for the reminder of the 1/8"! I had to retro tat second 'bit' because I for got that 1/8" after the first ring. I've become an expert in opening rings, however, so no biggie. LOL Learn as I go. Thank goodness split rings became easy for me in April of '07. I shall tat on today, after services. I'll leave a note when I've finished 3RD part.

Hmph. Had to clean my flat today in order to find my "1st part" so I could catch-up parts 2 & 3. Oh well, at least now I can tat in good conscience.

I am glad you got this fun, "Tat It and See", going.
Last year I did a lot of crocheting and knitting and have been itching to do some Tatting again.
I guess Tatting is like riding a bike, you never forget how, lol.

Take care and be well,
Roger aka Freedman

big smile!

Jane--thank you so much for this great idea. It is so much fun to look forward to the next section. This has even gotten me back to my tatting which I had put away for awhile, being busy beading these days. Thank you for that!!

Getting interesting Jane. Thanks for the advice on loading the shuttles. Red text works like a treat.

Jane -

This is sooo much fun!. I am enjoying every bit of it. Since I do not know how to open rings, I am being very careful before I close them. Eagerly waiting for DAY 5.
