Marcella Ouzts Beginner's Bookmark in Tatting and Hairpin Lace

Many thanks to Marcella Ouzts for sharing her design for a bookmark with the online tatting class. Marcella has been making small motifs like this to decorate the shuttle bags she has made for a recent exchange. You can lengthen the pattern as desired.

There are 12 loops on each side. Each ring gathers in two loops when joining.

Question from Georgia: Can one not use the tail of a wound shuttle to "wrap" the loom with loops and when finished with the hairpin add on a second shuttle/thread and climb into the next row with a split ring?
