Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

focus

At present, focus IS the word...

I uploaded my "homemade" video, showing the beads covered with tatting, that is a variation of the method showed in "Lesson 180 - Prayer Beads" - a video by the expert, Karen Cabrera 😍(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8im4OB91AWY). Thank you Karen, your videos are beautiful!

Here it is my video:


------
Wound 2 shuttles CTM. In this video, first shuttle is the yellow one.
Beads' diameter is 6mm. It is covered with flowers, that are 3 rings of 5+5-5-5, then last is a split ring:5+5/5+5

After the second ring, pass the thread of the second shuttle behind the thread of the working shuttle, then tat the third ring. Then the last tatted is a split ring: upper thread is the working thread, start the loop around the hand with that one, gently pull the second thread before starting the second side of the split ring. Then, pass a loop of the thread of the first shuttle through each picot. Reverse work and pick the loop clockwise. Pass both shuttles inside the loop. Pull the loop to close the flower, but first put the bead inside, pull the first shuttle to close the loop.

Nel mio video "casalingo", vedrete una variante del metodo mostrato dalla vera professionista di video, Karen Cabrera: "Lesson 180 - Prayer Beads" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8im4OB91AWY) Mille grazie a Karen, per i suoi preziosi video!

Con 2 navette. In questo video, la prima navetta è quella gialla. Il diametro delle perle è di 6mm; lo schema del semplice fiore che le ricopre è di 3 anelli di 5nodi, pippiolino (ovvero aggancio al precedente anello) 5nodi, pippiolinoi, 5nodi, pippiolino, 5nodi; l'ultimo anello è uno split ring di 5nodi, aggancio, 5nodi, poi con la seconda navetta 5nodi, aggancio e 5nodi.

Dopo il secondo anello, passare il filo della seconda navetta dietro il filo della navetta principale e fare il terzo anello. L'ultimo anello è lo split ring: il filo superiore è il filo della navetta principale (gialla), fare il cerchio attorno alla mano con questa navetta, poi prima di fare la seconda parte, tirare gentilmente il filo della seconda navetta per avvicinare i cerchi.
Rovesciare il lavoro per passare un'asola di filo della navetta principale attraverso i pippiolini. Infilare il filo in senso orario. Infilare entrambe le navette dentro l'asola. Per chiudere il fiore, tirare l'asola, ma prima mettere la perla. Per chiudere l'asola, tirare la navetta principale.

  2. I'm with Jane, I have some plain beads that need some tatting. I had started to cover them but your technique is much better than what I was trying.
