Mary Maynard's "Edgy Tatting"




The basic pattern uses two colors of thread and split rings.

There are as many ways to tat this edging as there are tatters. Mary Maynard, however, asks us to follow this method which uses half stitches and see how it works. 2 shuttles are needed for both two color work and monochrome. If using only one color remember to wind the shuttles continuous thread method (CTM)


R = ring
# = the number of ds done in repetition
1/2 = the first half stitch (over/under)
2/1 = the second half stitch (under/over)
rw = reverse work
SH1 = shuttle #1
SH2 = shuttle #2
SS = switch shuttles
RODS = reverse order double stitch
- picot, -- medium picot, --- large picot

A. Split ring R1 = 3 - 2 / 5
B. R2 = 2 1/2 + (join to prev. picot)4 - 4 - 3
C. R3 = 3 1/2 + 5 - 2 -- 2 --- 2 -- 2 - 5 - 4
D. R4 = 3 + 1/2 3 - 4 - 3
E. Split ring R5 = 2 + 1/2, 2 5
F. Split ring R6 = 5 / 5 rw SS
G. R7 = RODS 5 - 5 rw SS
H. R8 = 5 / 5 rw SS
repeat from ring A for desired length

Basics of Beading

Placing Bead in Center Ring - Jane Eboralll

Another method to place beads in center of split ring - Jaquie Teal





Note that the beaded earrings have beads on the core thread (SH1), beads on picots, beads on a long picot which is folded down and joined and beads in the middle of the split rings. Mary also advises us to post SH2 through the split ring when tatting with beads.
