Saundra Hameed's Round Center Motif in Tatting and Hairpin Lace

Many thanks to Saundra Hameed for preparing this beginner's pattern for the online tatting class to practice on. Here the hairpin strip is gathered into a round and secured. Each loop of the hairpin lace joins to a tatted ring. This would be a great center motif on a larger doily or would look super as an individual motif made in multiples for a runner or table covering. And you could even add beads to create a holiday ornament!

Hairpin Lace with Tatting Motif

This was done with a 2 inch hairpin lace loom.

Make one hairpin lace strip with 36 loops on each side of loom. Being careful not to twist, sew ends of center section of strip. Weave a length of thread through one side of loops and tie securely. This will be the center of the motif.

R 4, p, 4, join to one of the outer loops of hairpin lace, 4, p, 4 clr rw
CH 5, p, 5 rw
*R 4, join to picot on previous ring, 4, join to next outer loop of hairpin lace, 4, p, 4 clr rw
CH 5, p, 5 rw
Repeat from * joining last chain to top of first ring.

Note: Pattern Variation - Make 1 or 2 twists in hairpin lace loop before joining to ring.
