This little snowflake is a sample of what you will find in my new book, Let It Snow, to be published soon.
|R: Ring||Ch: Chain||+: Join|
|CL: Close||S/R: Split Ring||-: picot|
Two shuttles are required; non split ring tatters can start with one shuttle.
I have written the instructions so that it may be tatted either using split rings or not. When you get going on this one, you can make several in an evening. Happy tatting!
Round 1: Starting in the center, tat six rings all joined to each other: 4 + 6 - 6 + 4. CL.
Round 2: [non split ring tatters] R: 5 + 5 (attach to any picot on top of any ring from previous round),
Round 2 [split ring tatters]: S/R: 5 / 5. CL.
Round 2: everybody: ch 12
**Join to the picot where all the rings from round 1 are joined.
R: 5 + 5 (to picot at top of next ring from round 1.
Reverse your shuttles and work clover as follows:
R: 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. CL.
R: 3 + 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 - 3. CL (join to last picot of previous ring)
R: 3 + 3 - 3 - 3. CL (join to last picot of previous ring)
