I show how I make this style of “double row rosette”, to help Sue and all those interested. I learned this technique as well as many other things in Edwige Renaudin’s book.
- You need 2 shuttles: one shuttle with a lot of thread and the other one, just a little.
- You have to tat big rings (for example:7DS -7DS -7DS -7DS) and small rings (for example: 4DS- 4DS -4DS -4DS).
- Begin with a big ring. Then turn the work and tat one DS with the least filled shuttle. So the ring is attached on a big ring. Be careful, that always has to slide to be closed at the end
It’s possible (and more easy) to close the ring at the end.
- Tat a little ring, and attach it to the central ring with an unflipped double stitch.
- Tat a big ring: the first picot is a joint with the first big ring. Attach it to the central ring with “reversed” double stitch.
- Tat a little ring: the first picot is a joint with the first little ring. Attach it to the central ring with an unflipped double stitch.
- So continue. It’s easier to fold the work. Be careful at the time of closing the central ring.
