Edging with Interlocking Rings

Edging with Interlocking Rings

Edging with Interlocking Rings by Dagmar Pezzuto ©2014

Here is another charming tatting pattern shared by Dagmar Pezzuto. It is tatted with regular rings, split rings and interlocking rings. Two shuttles are required to achieve this effect. Since there are interlocking rings, celtic style, the shuttle will need to pass through a completed ring. This means that at least one shuttle must be the narrow celtic style. Or, this may be tatted using a blunt needle as if it were a shuttle, or in regular needle tatting style.

CTM = continuous thread method

R = ring

CH = chain

- = picot

SR = split ring

JK = josephine knot/ring

clr = close ring

rw = reverse work

dnrw = do not reverse work

bts = bare thread space

The order of work is straightforward. Regular ring, chain, josephine ring, chain, cloverleaf, chain, josephine ring, interlocking ring and lastly, a split ring.
