dahlia

"Chiacchierino facilissimo" it means "very easy tatting", that is exactly how difficult it was tatting this dahlia!


I used the button as a brooch or alternatively buttoned up a chain of split rings and used as a collar.

It is one shuttle pattern. I used a dmc metallic thread for embroidery, 2 strands, and a silk thread size 3. Two rounds of rings (you can choose the size, for example I tatted rings with 6-9-6) joined one another in opposite direction, that is the third it's joined to the first, then the fourth to the second, 6 repetitions for the first round that is the inner part of the flower:



I brought the thread on the bottom part of the flower, didn't cut the thread, and continued with the second round, a lock join to the base of first petal it helps the stability:


Here it is the flower at the end of the inner round, there's a glass ball inside and a pencil:

Before starting the outer round, I left a little bare of thread:

10 or 12 repetitions for the outer round. I sewed the button and the red agate beads at the end, using - in part - the tail left from the shuttle.

Ciao,
Ninetta

  3. Ninetta, that is just lovely. I like how the metallic thread makes it a little sparkly. I think I could do this one. I need a brooch for my winter coat.

  4. That's a lovely flower Ninetta. It's an extension of the double layer flower I'd tatted before, interesting. Thanks for the pattern.
