Donata Jones' Angel Recumbent



Donata Jones was inspired by my 3-dimensional birthday angel tatted by Katie Johnson: Katie's Angel. Donata 's angel is tatted in repose, hence "recumbent" :)


Donata's directions:
CTM continuous thread method
R ring
p or - picot
ch chain
SR split ring
SCH split chain
+ = joining
( ) where to join
sh A shuttle A
sh B shuttle B
rw reverse work
cl close ring

Wind shuttles CTM and begin with shuttle A as shuttle thread and shuttle B as ball thread.
*R= 6 - 6 cl, rw
ch = 10 rw
repeat from * 3 times
SR= 6 / 6
switch shuttles so B is shuttle thread and A is ball thread
ch 4, rw
**R= 6 - 6 cl, rw
ch 4 + (to next free p of ring) 4 rw
repeat from ** 2 times
switch shuttles so A is shuttle thread and B is ball thread (do not reverse work before starting split chain; begin the first stitch from the front so the stitches go downward like the rest of the chain; end with a half stitch so the thread is upward to start next split ring)


using shuttle A sch= join to p of last ring on row 1
ch 4 and 1 / 2 stitches do not reverse work
SR 6 / 6 cl rw
ch 4 rw
R= 6 - 6 cl rw
ch= 4 +(to next free p of ring) 4 rw
R= 6 - 6 cl rw
ch= 4 + (to next free p of ring) 4 rw
switch shuttles so B is shuttle thread and A is ball thread; using shuttle B make split chain as before
SR= 6 / 6 cl
ch 4 rw
R= 6 - 6 cl rw
ch= 4 +(to next free p of ring) 4 rw
r= 6 - 6 cl rw
ch= 4 +(to next free p of ring)

start wings
ch 20 rw
R= 3 - 3 - 3 - 3 cl rw
ch 15
SR= shuttle B 5 +(to center p of last ring made) 5 +(to p of next ring) 5 +(to p of next ring) 5 - 5/ shuttle A 5 (throw off ring)
R=6 small p 3 (- 3) 5 times; small p 6 cl 5 cl SR
ch 15
R= 3 - 3 +(to p of split ring) 3 - 3 cl rw
ch 20
shuttle join between split chain and split ring on body; switch shuttle A shuttle thread, B ball thread
ch 23 +(at base of ring) 18 +(at close of split ring) 3 +(at neck) 5 {+ at p 5} 7 times 5 +(at neck) 3 (at beginning of wing) 18 +(at base of ring) 23 +(at end of wing) tie and cut hide ends
