Rose Brooch by Jeanne Lugert
Jeanne Lugert's Rose Brooch
If you tatted the rose earrings by Jeanne Lugert last week, you will be pleased to find this matching brooch pattern, also from the files of the Online Tatting Class.
R = ring
CH = chain
SR = split ring
CL = close ring
+ = join
± = make a picot on the first repeat and join there on the following repeats
W = split chain or wrap stitches
Model shown used size 20 thread in green.
There is one split ring in the pattern. Wind 2 shuttles or you can simply open the ring extra wide and do the wrapping of the single split ring using the ball of thread with a rubber band around it.
#1 R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 clr leave a 4 DS space of thread (about ¼")
#2 R 3 + 3 - 3 - 3 clr leave space
#3 R 4 ± 4 - 4 - 4 clr leave space
#4 R 3 + 3 - 3 - 3 clr leave space
#5, 6, 7 R 2 + 2 - 2 - 2 clr do not leave a space of thread. You are now headed back toward the beginning.
W 4 ds over the space between rings 5 & 4. (If you do not wish to do wrap stitches, you may simply join to the thread space or leave another ¼" space and then do a join in the bottom of ring 4.)
#8 R 3 + 3 - 3 - 3 clr
W 4 DS
#9 R 4 + 4 - 4 - 4 clr
