My Free Patterns

I am still sorting out the blog entries for my free patterns, so there willl still be patterns that are not accessible. My apologies.

Yellow next

After the raspberry pink, I picked up a yellow gold and started on another doily.

It did not turn out the way I had wanted it to, so I snipped the thread off. With the balance of thread in the shuttle, I attempted the loop tatted ring.  This is my frail attempt of it.  I struggled a bit, no .... a lot, in trying to figure out which thread to pull to close that ring sitting on top of the base ring.
I was trying to be clever and tatted this, all the while trying to figure it out by recalling from memory what I had read from Tatting Fool's blog.

Later, I decided to watch this video on Loop Tatted Ring that Frivole prepared.
Silly me, I was passing the shuttle through one of the loops before closing the ring, whereas Frivole had passed the loop over the top ring.   (I am not surprised if you can't understand what I am trying to say, I am confused myself).

*Loading the shuttles again for another attempt of the yellow-gold doily*

  1. Passing the shuttle through the loop will work if you do it at the right time: First close the ring, then pass the shuttle through the loop, then pull the shuttle to close the loop. Passing the loop over the ring is easier (at least for me) if there are no joins. However, if there are any joins in the LTR, then passing the shuttle through the loop is the only thing that will work.
