Mock ring with a bead in center
I am working on a design that will have a mock ring with a bead in the center. To do this, start tatting a mock ring (it's actually a chain) leaving a large loop at the beginning. When you have tatted enough to fit halfway around your bead, slip the bead onto the loop, put the shuttle through the loop, and tighten. Then tat the rest of the way around the bead, and do a lock join at the beginning.
The sample is being worked in my 2nd batch of "Roses" hand dyed thread.
