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: http://tinyurl.com/j9algbv . 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.
