Cluny Flowers in two thread colors shared Dagmar Pezzuto 2014 © from the Online Tatting Class lessons. Be sure to view the video Dagmar has prepared also. The use of two colors in the weaving of the cluny gives added depth and texture to these designs.
CH = chain
CL = cluny
- = picot
-- = long picot
R = ring
Clr = close ring
+ = join
Using 3 shuttles and 3 colors of thread, Begin with a round center ring. Since the central ring is a separate third color, there is no opportunity to climb out without cutting the thread.
R = 1ds -- ( 1st half ds ) - (2nd half ds ). 10x . Clr. Cut and Tie.
Petals ( Flower 1 ) Using 3 threads (two same color) weave the 1st petal = 16 passes alternating colors. See video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02oALC69L-U
CH = 10 ds 2nd petal = CL 16 passes alternating colors + 2nd picot.
3rd petal = CL 16 passes alternating
CH = 10 ds. 4st petal = CL 16 passes alternating colors + 3rd picot.
Continue around until complete. Finish with CL + 1st picot.
Petals ( Flower 2 )
1st petal = 16 passes alternating colors
CH = 12 ds 2nd petal = CL 16 passes alternating colors + 3rd picot
1ds + 2nd picot
Pass the shuttle through the arch formed to cross the petals
3rd petal = CL 16 passes alternating colors
CH = 12 ds 4th petal = CL 16 passes alternating colors + 5st picot
1ds + 4th picot.
Pass the shuttle through the arch formed to cross the petals.
Continue around and finish with CL + 1st picot crossing the petals.
