Sometimes, when an idea comes, you just have to get started on it even though there are already other WIPs waiting to be completed. Do you do that sometimes?
Well it happens quite often with me. But, a tatter needs to tat, ha ha ha ........
So, I started on a new project, in the midst of preparing for Eid-ul-Fitr which is coming in a couple more days, besides having other things to do as well. I am thinking of an oval doily and as I start I can straightaway see the making of a simple bookmark which I am sharing here.
I started with a row of split rings in the centre followed by the basic rings and chains for the first round. This would be a good exercise for beginners to get familiar with tatting split rings. A chart with an explanation of the stitch count is given below.
You can make the split rings in the centre to any length you like.
