NHY Acorn Medallion #24
Forty Original Designs in Tatting By Nellie Hall Youngburg Novel and Unique Designs with Complete Instructions for Every Pattern Designed and Executed by Nellie Hall Youngburg, Brookings, SD© 1921. As a summer tatting project tatters in the Online Tatting Class have been rewriting and modernizing the patterns in this vintage tatting book. Diagrams and new models have been prepared to help the tatter follow the patterns more easily. Both the original public domain booklet and the new version are being posted online to share with all tatters everywhere.

The original pattern specifies ¼" picots on the center ring. To prevent cupping, I suggest ¼" picots for 1st + 3rd picot on rings and Middle/2nd picot on chain 1 + chain 3.
Wind two shuttles continuous thread method.
* Start here. Consider adding a magic thread loop to hide ends later.
