Clara Haase pats #2 #4

Needlecraft Magazine October 1925
More Tatting Patterns by Clara Haase

Needlecraft Magazine published in the first half of the 20th century in Augusta, Maine was one of many publications designed for women. It featured everything from recipes to home remedies, practical linens and clothes repairs to delicate laces. The earliest issue that I have is from 1912. It continued in publication under that name until about 1933 when the name was changed to Needlecraft Home Arts Magazine. It last appeared in the early 1940's under the name of Home Arts Magazine. It had monthly issues and specialty publications.

This is the earliest issue that I have that actually shows tatting on the cover.

These are two more designs are by Clara Haase. Her name appears more than once in Needlecraft Magazine. I also believe that this same set of patterns was reprinted 48 years later in "Olde Time Needlework Patterns and Designs: Exquisite Designs and Patterns Out of the Glorious Past " in the March 1973 issue. And, now, 89 years after they first appeared, the patterns are still ever fresh.

R = Ring CH = Chain clr = close ring rw = reverse work dnrw = do not reverse work - = picot + = join slj = shuttle lock join

Pattern 2

Using two shuttles tat a round center ring of 7 picots separated by 3 ds. Close ring and climb out with a mock picot into the next round.

Using shuttle one tat onion ring R 8 - 8 clr dnrw. Rotate ring slightly to begin the outer onion ring more easily.

Outer onion ring R 11 + (onion ring join to inner ring) small picot 11 clr and + (join to the base of the inner ring.)

Bring shuttle thread to the back of the center ring and make shuttle lock join to the next two picots. Once secured to the second picot, repeat onion ring set.

Continue around for a total of four sets of onion rings.

Bring shuttle thread to the back of the center ring and make shuttle lock join to the next free picot. Once secured to the picot, begin next all chain round.

CH 8 - 6 + (join to the picot on the next outer onion ring,) 1 - 6 - 8 slj to the next freestanding picot on center ring.

The last round of chain work may be attached separately, or make the last chain of the previous round a split chain.

The set of two chains at the corner of the motif are all CH 6 - 6 +
the single chain at the sides are CH 7 - 7 +

If tatting this pattern using the onion ring technique, the special onion ring joins must be used!

Pattern 4

*R 7 - 7 - 7 - 7 clr dnrw

CH 8 + (join to first picot of ring) dnrw

Using shuttle 2 throw off a floating ring off this chain.

R 7 - 1 - 1 - 7 clr dnrw

CH 8 + (join to second picot of first ring) dnrw

*Repeat from * for desired length.

For the last ring in the row; tat the upper chain with floating ring first. Then make the last ring a split ring which exits at the third picot into the next round.

The finishing round of the pattern is all chains.

CH 9 - 9 + (join to the third picots of the rings) and repeat to the end.
