A conversation on the Facebook group gives me the opportunity for a new tutorial: double double stitch!
A double double stitch is used to obtain a stronger bow than usual. It is particularly recommended for very long chains because there is less deformation.
The goal is to get a knot at 4 feet instead of 2.
During the first part of the stitch, before tightening the knot, return the shuttle in the loop in the direction indicated by the red arrow.
Then do the second part of the knot. Likewise, you must pass again the shuttle in the loop in the direction indicated by the red arrow.

For some weird reason, I cannot see the rose you tatted ! Saw it on 25 Motif Challenge, but not visible here ?! Beautiful rose !!!
I love this stitch & it has so many more applications & I use it frequently in my patterns. If you search for “padded tatting” in my blog, you will come across my experiments, in case you are interested 🙂
This is a little experiment I showed on Facebook to the group “Frivolité”. A recent conversation talking about balance double stich and I found it was perfect to tat this. Some do not know , so I made a tutorial. Your blog is full of resources!
