Ginny Weathers' Simple Ornament


Virgina Weathers, award-winning tatter, shares her pattern for a simple tatting decoration for a holiday ornament. Ginny challenges the online tatting class to create variations based on her pattern.

Ring 1: 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 RW
*Chain: 5 - 5
Ring 2: 6 - 6
Chain: 5 - 5 RW
Ring 3: 4 + 4 - 4 - 4 RW*
Continue from * to *until there are seven center rings.
Chain: 5 - 5 RW
Ring: 4 + 4 - 4 + 4 RW
Chain: 5 - 5
Ring: 6 - 6
Chain: 5 - 5
Cut and join to base of first ring, hide ends.


Make two; put one on top and one on the bottom, then just take a thread on a needle and weave it between the top part and the bottom part cut and tie. (Some fancy needleweaving stitches.)

To share your own version of this pattern with the online tatting class, send in the directions typed in an email message and send any photo or diagram as a *.jpg or *.gif file. Good luck!
