This pattern is all chains and you'll only need a short length of thread in the shuttle. For a size 20 thread, I only needed 50cm thread in the shuttle. The pattern uses six beads on the ball thread and one loose bead, and a paperclip or coil-less pin (which I used here).
1. Pull the thread through the loose bead and hold it in place with a paper-clip.
2. Start with a mock picot at the beginning of the chain and tat (2-2-2). Remove the paper clip and lock join to the loop of thread coming out from the bead. Make a picot and continue tatting the chain with (2-2-2). Lock join to the mock picot at the beginning.
3. Start with a mock picot at the beginning of this round. Tat a chain (2 b 2), where 'b' is a beaded picot. Lock join to the next picot of Step 2 and repeat the chain of (2 b 2) until all six beads are used. Lock join to the picot at the beginning of the chain.
4. In this last round, tat a chain (2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2), lock join to the space between the chains of Step 3. Finish the round with a lock join to the beginning of the chain.
I have finished this daisy with a ribbon at the back and glued a pin to it. There are many other ways of finishing, such as
- sewing on yo-yos
- sewing on to felt fabric
- attaching to headbands.
So wonderful of you to share this! Excellent detail, photos and diagram, and a very clever idea and attractive pin! Thank you, Jon!ReplyDelete

That's pretty. Thanks for the pattern.ReplyDelete
it is beautiful, I get an inspiratio to learn tatting just to do something as nice as this flower is.ReplyDelete
I gave this a try last night and your instructions are very clear. Many thanks. (I would post a picture but hubby is away and I'm no good with technology.) I used a variegated thread and white beads first, then a second one with amethyst beads and violet thread. (the amethyst were left from another project). This second one I fastened to a ribbon to make a choker collar. It looks grand!ReplyDelete
