Pointed Edging - Mabel Ketchum 1917



Mabel Ketchum's Tatted Edging with Points

The Plain Dealer Aug. 12, 1917



Mabel's Edging is a simple pattern which forms delicate points. This edging may be used to adorn clothing, linens or even turned into jewelry. Add a few beads over the joins and in the centers of the rings and instant necklace!

Note that a single number placed in the center of a ring indicates the number of double stitches between each picot or join. Numbers placed next to a segment of a chain gives the double stitch count for only that segment of the chain.

If you want to place beads on the picots, then those beads must be wound on the shuttle thread. The beads are moved into position as the ring is wrapped around the left hand. The beads dangle on the back side of the left hand until moved into position as picot is formed.

As any join is made, a crochet hook may be used to slide a bead over a picot while the join is being made. Pick up bead on crochet hook, insert hook into picot, apply tension to picot; when taut, slide the bead down onto the picot and while crochet hook is still inserted into the picot, pick up the thread for a join.

Beads may also be placed on the core thread for either ring or chain. Beads from the shuttle slide into position directly from the shuttle as the ring/chain is tatted. This can create many unusual patterns just right for jewelry.
