Imported Designs of Tatting Book #77 detail motif



This design looks more complicated than it is. The center is a simple round center ring from which we can climb out using the mock picot and split ring into round 2. We can later climb out again into round 3 with a short 4 double stitch split chain, mock picot and split ring. This is an excellent exercise for the beginning tatter to practice all three techniques.
