Momcat Monday-Needle Tatting #7 (Curves and Swirls)

Written by Linda Chaney, mother.



My tatting lessons continue with more videos from Le Cose Dell Anto.  First up is an earring pattern, Tutorial #5.  Again, a simple pattern but stitch tension is important.  I think I'm beginning to conquer the tension for tatting chains. The differences between the front and back of the earring are very subtle.

Add a ring among the chains to create the swirl bracelet (Tutorial # 11). It was also my first adventure into adding beads - adding a bead to the large picot (loop) tatted on the chain  I was excited to tat this sample and will return to the pattern again to make a full size bracelet!
