DS = double stitch
DDS = double double stitch
R = ring
SR = split ring
CH = chain
CL = Cluny
+ = join
- = picot
clr = close ring
rw = reverse work
CTM = continuous thread method
2 shuttles or ball and tatting needle
Suggested thread = size 8 (Esterlina # 8 used in sample)
Begin Round one with shuttle wound in the continuous thread method.
R1 = 5DS - 5DS - 9DS. clr. rw
CL1 = 19 passes
CL2 = 19 passes + R1. rw
SR2 = 5DS - 5DS / 9DS. clr
CL3 = 19 passes
CL4 = 19 passes
R3 = 9 DS + ( R2 ) 5DS - 5DS. clr.
SR4 = 5DS - 5DS / 9DS. clr. rw
CL5 = 19 passes
CL10 = 19 passes
R5 = 9DS +( R4 ) 5DS - 5DS. clr
Repeat until completing 23 rings and 24 clunys.
SR24 = 10DS - 10DS + ( R1 ) 10DS / 10DS. clr
CH1 = 18DS + ( CL 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19 )
CH2 = 18DS + ( CL 18,17)
CH3 = 9DS - 9DS + ( CL 16,15 )
CH4 = 9DS - 9DS + ( CL 14,13,12,11 )
CH5 = 9DS + ( CH4 ) 9DS + ( CL 10,9 )
CH6 = 9DS - 9DS + ( CL 8,7 )
CH7 = 18DS + ( CL 6,5,4,3,2,1 )
CH8 = 18DS + ( R24 )
CH9 = 16DDS + ( CH3 )
CH10 = 10DDS + ( CH6 )
CH11 = 16DDS + ( CH24 )
Finish off ends.
Here's how to wind the hand loom and weave a tallie or cluny leaf:
Place the previously complete work in the pinch. Bring the ball or shuttle 2 thread across the middle finger and ring finger and back down to the pinch. Allow a loop of thread to dangle down below the pinch (place a space holder or hackle pliers on the loop to prevent premature closing. Bring the thread back up and across the ring finger and anchor it to the little finger with a few ties or wraps.
Take up shuttle 1 (or the tatting needle) and begin to weave the leaf. One pass is a complete trip from the right to the left and back to the right. The pattern will designate the number of wraps.
Take the shuttle over/under/over to the left, then under/over/under back to the right. Use the point of the shuttle/needle or a crochet hook to move the thread tightly down to the point.
|Make the leaf get a little wider at the center then taper off again. Remove loops from hand or loom and close carefully.|
