Floating Ring and packed for Tat Days

The mini-tutorial above is one I prepared quickly for a student in my Craftsy class to show which shuttle to use to tat a floating ring (ring thrown off a chain), while keeping a smooth curve in the chain.

I've packed a good sampling of my hand dyed thread to bring to Palmetto Tat Days, which will be sold via the consignment service provided by the guild. What I'll be doing is taking classes! I'm looking forward to fresh inspirations and visiting with people, some of which I've only "met online" up till now.


I'll leave you with this picture of a Cosmos flower. This variety has petals that form little "tube" or "trumpet" shapes. I've wondered if a 3-D tatting pattern could be developed to mimic it!

Learning to do the throw off rings and using two shuttles was one of the best techniques I learned and opened the door to so many other patterns and techniques in tatting. Your student will be so grateful. Have fun at Palmetto.
