Nina Libin - Beaded Necklace (Needle Tatting)


The Online Tatting Class welcomes Nina Libin. Nina shares her design for a beaded necklace with directions for both shuttle and needle tatting. Many thanks.

Two color necklace - bnl016

(For needle tatting)

You will need 12 -13 yards of DMC # 20 thread,
424 (430) light color seed beads # 9 and
157 (160) blue Iris three-cut # 9.

Symbols used through the pattern:

= white seed bead
· = blue Iris 3-cuts
// = shape, tighten & turn upside down
^ = lock join to the previous chain
~ = reverse the work

Take a ball of thread and 'needle' the tail;
String: [12 + 4 · + 12 + 5 ·] 17 times + [12 + 4 · + 4] once. This is enough beads for a 18" necklace;
thread the needle; be sure that there are 4 light seeds on the loop and make the only ring in the pattern. After that there are all chains.
