Kite with Cluny Tail - Mimi Dillman


Kite with Cluny Tail

Mimi Dillman is a master tatter and well-known for her work with the method of Cluny tatting. Cluny basics

hand position for cluny tatting Georgia Seitz

Thread: sample made from size 30 Cebelia
Shuttles: 2 tied together
Skills needed: cluny leaf, split ring, self-closing mock ring (SCMR)
Begin with the tail, making cluny leaves one after the other. I made mine of varying widths and lengths intending to create the effect of a ribbon twisting in the breeze.

When your tail is complete, begin the kite itself. For those who prefer a visual pattern, I have provided one below. However, I urge you to read through the text pattern here to get some tips on where to use a split ring, and where to use a self-closing mock ring. The idea is to complete the kite without cutting or tying, and having the ends come out at the middle of the kite to simulate the kite string.

R1: split ring 12 ds, p, 4ds / 12 ds, p, 4 ds
R2: ring 4 ds, j to closest p of R1, 4ds, p, 8 ds
RW and switch shuttles (SS)
R3: ring 4 ds, j to closest p of R1, 4ds, p, 8 ds

R7: 4 ds, j to free p of R6, 4 ds, p, 4 ds, p, 4 ds

R13*: SCMR [8 ds
R14: 8 ds, j to free p of R12, 4 ds, p, 4 ds

Tie the two threads together at the base of the SCMR and twist together to be the kite-string.
