I have included a diagram - please refer to it if unclear about where repeats join to each other.



Round 1 Central Ring: 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 (5 p)

Mock picot to climb out. (ring now has a total of 6 picots)

Now make 6 of the following chains with rings thrown off the top (shuttle method), (needle tatting method) joining each chain's 1st p to the last p of the previous one:

CH 6 - 6 DNRW [all other repeats, this p is a join]
R 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 DNRW
CH 6 - 6 DNRW
Lock join to the next picot on the ring below

Join the last chain to the first on the way down to finish at the top of the mock picot you used to climb out from the central ring. Tie, cut and finish ends.

Round 2 Attach to the 2nd picot of any outer ring in Round 1.

CH 3 - 6 DNRW [join to last p of previous chain in future repeats]
R 4 - 4 DNRW [join this ring to 3rd p of previous chain in later repeats]
CH 3 - 3
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (3rd p of ring from which the original chain started) 6 DNRW
R 6 + (1st p of next ring) 6
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (to base of first cluny) 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
CH 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
Cluny (20)
Join to thread space between last cluny and 2nd ring of the pair
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (to base of 3rd cluny) 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
CH 3 - 3 - 6 - 3
Lock Join to top picot of ring from Round 1

Repeat 6 times around, joining the last chain to the first ring and chain of the first repeat. Join at the place you started, cut, tie and finish off your threads.

"Bon amusement toutes."





Mimi's "Stained Glass Window" Variation

I changed up the working order when using 2 colors, allowing the leaves in one color to be encircled by rings and chains of a contrasting color.

Summary of changes: for Round 1 I made a ring surrounded with chains only, and made the rings that had been thrown off these chains before as regular rings joined to these chains in round 2.

Round 1 Central Ring: 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 (5 p)

Mock picot to climb out. (ring now has a total of 6 picots)

Now make 6 of the following chains, joining the each chain's 1st p to the previous chain's p:

CH 6 - 6 - 6 - 6
Lock join to the next picot on the ring below

Join the last chain at its last p to the 1st p of the 1st chain. Finish at the top of the mock picot you used to climb out from the central ring. Tie, cut and finish ends.

Round 2 Attach to the 2nd picot of any outer ring in Round 1.

R 3 - 3 + (to 2nd p of any chain in round 1) 3 - 3 [join ring at 1st p to 2nd ring at base of cluster of clunies in future repeats]
CH 3 - 6 DNRW [join to last p of previous chain in future repeats]
R 4 - 4 DNRW [join this ring to 3rd p of previous chain in later repeats]
CH 3 - 3
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (3rd p of ring from which the original chain started) 6 DNRW
R 6 - 6 [1st ring of next repeat will join here]
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (to base of first cluny) 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
CH 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
Cluny (20)
Join to thread space between last cluny and 2nd ring of the pair
Cluny (20)
R 6 + (to base of 3rd cluny) 3 - 3 - 3 - 3
CH 3 - 3 - 6 - 3

Repeat 6 times around, joining 1st ring of the rest of the repeats to the 2nd ring of the 2 - ring set at the base of the cluny cluster each time.

At the end, join the last chain to the small ring and its chain of the first repeat. Join at the base of the starting ring, cut, tie and finish off your threads.
