I made this video to demonstrate how I make Catherine Wheel joins, because I find them really useful. This type of join forms a smooth curve with no dips or breaks when outlining another tatted element in a design. The video just shows a single ring being outlined in order to explain the basic process.
Examples of where I've used this type of join include the Boomerang earrings and the Amoeba Triangle. I also have another pattern in progress that uses it, so you'll be seeing more of this join.
