Pattern #8158 pg. 6



This medium sized mat may be tatted in multiples to create a tablecloth. There is a round center ring, an oval motif and a butterfly-like filler motif for the edges and between ovals. Each motif maybe tatted separately and joined as tatted.





Although the round center ring may be tatted separately, this is an excellent point to use the split chain as it would be only four double stitches long.
