NH Youngburg Medallion #21 Pg.6
Tatted by Patricia Vera-Camacho
Although the no-cut and tie version of this pattern has been posted, this version which does use cut and tie shows the opportunity to introduce more color into the single pattern. This medallion will made in three rounds. For the first and second round you use only one shuttle, however, round 3 has chains which required two threads, one shuttle/needle and ball or two shuttles. The original pattern called for working with No. 20 linen color crochet cotton. I used No. 80 and the result was a medallion with 4,05 cm diameter.
R = Ring
CH =Chain
- or P = Picot
