Maus' Beaded Tatted Chain|
Maus formerly hosted the website tattings.com which wass a magnificent site for browsing. A regular tatter's delight, it showcased the wonderful talent of tatters around the world and encouraged all tatters to participate in the tatted round robin. A round robin for tatters consists of a group of tatters each starting a tatted project then shipping it off to another who adds a round and sends it on. It is a terrific stimulus to creativity. We all miss that site which is no longer active.
Maus recently created this beaded pearl-tatted bicolor chain on which to hang her name tag for work. Many thanks to her for sharing with the online tatting class.
Diagram for the chain. This pattern can be easily accomplished using the tatting needle and two ball threads. You will need to wrap one color with the lefthand and the other color with the right hand. Be sure to load the beads onto the ball threads first. I suggest using the Jiffy Needle Tatting method which threads the needle with a separate carrying cord. Leave long tails in the carrying cord to attach any jewelry findings or to anchor the chain when done.

This pattern has its roots in the work of Mlle. Riego.|
