This edging was inspired by Anne Orr's pattern from J. & P. Coats "Crochet, Cross Stitch and Tatting" Book 14 ©1923. It has been revised and redesigned by Dagmar Pezzuto 2014 ©
The tatting designs of Anne Orr and needlework articles published in many magazines such as Southern Woman's Magazine, Good Housekeeping and Better Homes and Gardens made tatting patterns available to all. Anne Champe Orr (1875-1946) was endlessly fascinated with needle work and designed and sold hundreds of thousands of patterns for cross stitch, quilting, crochet, filet crochet and tatting. She also provided employment for women in the Appalachians making appliquιd quilts and delicate tablecloths for sale. Anne is thought to have developed the split ring and daisy picot techniques. The tatting community is grateful for her many tatting patterns.

ROUND 2 CL 1 = 18 passes -
Cl2 = 18 passes +(shuttle lock join to the SR,)
Cl3 = 18 passes
