Tusk the Elephant Diagram

diagram for Tusk the Elephant by Harolah Cheser 2017

Notes: The use of the word arch or compress refers to shaping the chain. Holding the last double stitch firmly, slide the double stitch back to where the chain began. This forces a curve or arch into the work. If you feel there was too much compression, lay the chain down flat on the table and use the back of your thumbnail to gently brush the tops of the double stitch. This allows them to spread out a bit.

On the diagram, the trunk begins at the tip and split rings take the work back toward the head. The tip of the trunk is marked as a split ring. Since it is the first it need not be a split ring. Either way you tat it, be sure to move the bead up to the center point of the ring.
