Tatting thread 9 beads hs - half stitch

This piece is made using beads and half stitches. A half stitch is the first OR second part of the double stitch. When you remove the stitches from your needle, make sure that the stitches fit snuggle together. This half stitch causes the chain to twist and is called a Josephine Chain or Spiral Stitch.

Secure your thread to the cross by running your needle through the top of the cross a couple of time and knot.
