Tatted Ring Types


When a new tatter asked me to explain how a center ring is different from a normal tatted ring, I was surprised. When he further questioned why a josephine ring was not called a ring at all but a knot, I knew it was time to make a list of all the different types of rings that we create in tatting. This is my list so far. Please help me add to it. I am missing a photo or illustration for the square ring. If you have one please send it in.
