Nellie H Youngburg Motif #25 model
Using one shuttle/needle and ball thread or two shuttles, begin the center ring and chain motif. All six inner rings join to the same picot.

R 10 -- (long picot) 10 clr rw

CH 4 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 4 rw

* R 10 + (join to large picot) 10 clr rw

CH 4 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 4 rw

Repeat from 8 four more times.
Option A: After last chain fasten at base of first ring and finish off ends.
Option B: Tat last chain up to the last picot. Then tat split chain joining to the base of the first ring and wrapping ds over the bare chain thread back to the spot where the picot would have been. Lastly, tat mock picot and split ring to climb into round 2.

If using Opt. B Climb out with mock picot and tat split ring.

A. SR 2 - 2 / 2 - 2 clr rw dnrw

B. CH 4 - 2 - 2 - 2 rw

C. R 4 + (join to last picot on split ring) 4 clr rw

D. CH 2 - 2 - 2 - 4 rw

E. R 2 + (another join to split ring) 2 + (join to 4th picot on chain above) 2 - 2 clr rw

Leave no space. The next repeat begins with a regular ring A.

Make a second side and join by the side picots around leaving just 3 of the scallops unjoined.

A ruffle or flap is made at the top joining 5 of this scallops to the 3 scallops on each side which were not joined.

To finish, cover cabone ring with wrapped stitches and attach chains for drawstrings cords. The original had crocheted drawstrings.

A suggestion to consider is to use satin cord instead of crocheted or tatted chains as they fray quickly. Run the cord to the picots on the outer scallops through a picot and back to the cabone ring in a "W" pattern. Then cover the cord through the cabone ring with wrapped ds also.
