Off the Shuttles: Ring Around the Ring

I took a break from the proficiency program assignments to make this little motif.  It's a vintage edging pattern that was made into a ring.  I used Lizbeth #121 marble and white in size 20.  It's a lot smaller than the photo indicates.  It's only 2" across.  The pattern can be found here: .  The coloration didn't exactly turn out as I had envisioned.  It will still look pretty hanging on a Christmas tree.

It's pretty easy and doesn't take a lot of thinking.  I'll probably make it as an edging for a hankie. 

Update 1-28-2016:  The pattern for the ring can also be found in The DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs by Kirstine Nickolajsen & Inge Lise Nikolajsen on page 12.  It's simply called No. 2: Round Motif. The book is still available through Amazon and second hand online book sellers.
