original rose medallion plate 39 from Anne Orr Book 13

This is one of the classic rose medallion patterns. It was designed by the famous Anne Orr and published in her book 13. It begins with the regular round ring center and climbs out to four rows of tight chains before exiting into two all ring and chain rounds. As originally written it requires cutting the thread twice and again at the end of course. It is the perfect situation to study how we can use today's modern tatting techniques of mock picot, split ring and split chain to tat from the center to the outside without cutting the thread until the very end.
