Imported Designs of Tatting BK #77 8138 8141
Imported Designs of Tatting Book #77, 1936
With a clear photo and a numbered diagram, the tatter can recreate all the patterns in this book, "Imported Designs of Tatting #77" easily. This booklet was published with photos of the tatting only. No instructions, no patterns.
Pattern 8138 looks like all cloverleaf joined in a row alternating with chains. However, on each side one cloverleaf is followed by two rings only. But, on the return pass the edging joins across the center giving the appearance of the third ring of a cloverleaf. #8138 has decorative picots on both the rings and chains.
#8138, the repeat

Leave no space between rings

For insertion join the 2nd and 4th picots of the large rings to opposite side.
Pattern 8141 has cloverleafs joined in a row alternating with chains. But, on the return pass the edging joins across the center to make a second join in the same spot where the side rings of the cloverleaf previously joined. This produces a ladder like effect. Weaving a ribbon down the center would make a great bookmark. Note that the picots on the rings are only for joining purposes, but the chains do have decorative picots

All three rings of cloverleaf 10 - 10;
rings unjoined at sides, rw.
CH 5 - 5 - 5 - 5 rw
The side rings of each preceding cloverleaf join at mid point to the next side ring.
For insertion, the large ring of the cloverleaf joins into this same join making three rings in one join.
