Starting to write up the Ripple necklace pattern
Finally I'm getting around to writing up the pattern for this necklace, which I've entitled "Ripple". I'm planning to make it a free pattern, and it should be a good one for teaching. So far, I've figured out that the first ring is 6-2. An accomplishment in itself, since I first tried 2-6 and that was wrong!!! Of course I tried to open the closed ring, which I usually can do, but this time it didn't work, so I had to start again :(
Anyway, it starts R 6-2. Ch 7-3. R 2-4-2. That's as far as I've gotten, with the next chain being 3 and then a join to the previous chain, which is what is happening in the photo at left. I'll finish the pattern as soon as possible.
The motivation for this is that Discovery World asked if I would teach tatting classes there again. I'll post the dates as soon as I find out where they've put me in their calendar, probably Saturday mornings but I don't know which ones yet.
