Denise's Bracelet By Deborah Strickland



Needle Tatting Directions: String expected number of large beads on ball thread. Sample done with Size 20 Thread, and a Size 7 needle. 19 E Beads for the large and 38 seed beads for the beads used for the picot joins. Beads should be of appropriate size for the thread used. Keep in mind that you will be running your needle through the large bead so the hole should be of appropriate size to accommodate one thread and the needle. The sample finished out at 6 inches and after adding the clasp measured 7 inches.

R = ring
RW = reverse work
B = bead on picot join
- = construction picot
-- = picot big enough to pull up through bead and join
clr = close ring
+ = join to picot
/ = split ring

Begin with:
ROW 1
R 2 - 6 - 2 clr RW
(to add clasp to ring, tat instead, R 2 - 3 add clasp with a join 3 - 2 clr RW)
R 2 + 6 -- 4 clr RW + (join to picot of beg ring)
R 2 + 6 -- 4 clr RW + (join to other picot of beginning ring)

Pull up a large bead on the ball thread and run needle thread through so both threads are on top of bead.

ROW 2
R 4 B (using crochet hook, add bead to picot and join) 4 -- 4 clr RW
R 4 B (using crochet hook, add bead to picot and join) 4 -- 4 clr RW

Pull up a large bead on the ball thread and run needle thread through so both threads are inside bead.

Repeat ROW 2 for desired length.

For last ring 2 + 3 / 3 + 2 clr, tie, cut, hide ends
(to add clasp end roring, tat instead, R 2 + 3 / 3 + 2 add other part of clasp by slipping on needle, clr, tie, cut, hide ends).

Use jump rings to attach bracelet clasps or work alternate rings.
