aunt's collar - pattern for the edging - Part 2

After the previous post, you should have reached the upper right corner. Now there is a chain of 4 picots separated by 3ds, join to the central picot of the square's corner and tat another 3ds:
I joined with a lock stitch, but this is not a must, because now you're going to join to last picot of previous chain:
From now on, all chains will be the same length as in squares: 5 picots (considering a join as a picot too) separated by 3ds.

The rest of the edging recall the motif used as a corner in the square: RW and start a ring. Rings are even the same 3-3-3-3-3-3, but you should be careful where they are joined to the square motif. First ring is joined after the first 3ds to the central picot of the chain in the square.

Then RW and start the chain. After 3ds, join it to the last picot of previous chain. Continue the chain.
Then, that's the same as in the corner of a square. You would not use a second shuttle, after the chain DO NOT Reverse Work and start the ring with the same shuttle. The outer ring is joined to the last chain in its last picot. So, the ring is 3ds, join to the last picot of previous chain, 3ds, then repeat  1 picot, 3ds, for 4 times.
Then, RW and start the inner ring that is joined to the previous inner ring at its second picot.

Then reverse again work and start the second chain, like in the corner of the square. (Refer to pic 15.) That chain is joined to the outer ring, so for the chain : 3ds, join to the last picot of outer ring, 3ds, then repeat  1 picot, 3ds  for 4 times.

(RW) Start a ring and join its 2nd picot to the 4th of previous ring, AND its 3rd picot to the central picot of the second ring. Tat 3ds, picot, 3ds. Attention now: you must join the central picot of the chain in the square:
Then the pattern is very repetitive. RW, start the chain. After 3ds, join it to the last picot of previous chain. Continue the chain. Do not RW, join to the central picot of the square's corner and tat another 3ds. Join to the last picot of previous chain, then continue with 4 picots separated by 3ds. RW and start again from pic 10.

Each pointed motif is repeated for the length of the collar. You should note that the connection point between squares is tatted the same as in the collar's corner, your left bottom side in the pic 18. BUT the chains are NOT JOINED.

 This is the connection point between squares:
Start another chain, BUT don't join to previous chain:

Then restart another pointed motif.

When you reached the upper left corner of the collar, make a chain as usual, join to the central picot of the square's corner ring and tat another 3ds, join to last picot of previous chain and TAT ONLY 3 PICOTS MORE. That will take to the starting point of the edging.
RW, start a ring: 3ds, picot, 3ds, picot, 3ds. Join to the square motif at the next picot of square's corner ring. Continue the ring: 3ds, picot, 3ds, picot, 3ds. Close the ring, RW, make the last chain of 3ds, picot, 3ds, picot, 3ds. Cut and tie.

You should be proud of your new collar. I'm not. It's unwearable. :(


Ok, let's start a real collar then!

Ciao,

  1. That's very clever, and clever of you to figure it out! I'm working on the square for a bookmark. I could make it a pointy bookmark, hmmm.
