ANKARS Style Rose




The Russian beaded tatting style called ANKARS has generated a lot of interest recently. Nina Libin and Stephanie Wilson prepared a 4 lesson introduction to this method shared by Rina Stepnaya from her book on ANKARS. (See http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art16416.asp and http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art13848.asp) It was featured in the Online Tatting Class (www.georgiaseitz.com/2013/2013index.html) See the links for Feb. 25, March 11, March 25 and April 8, 2013.

Much of the foundation tatting for the ANKARS style features overlapping rings. See model by Stephanie Wilson. Stephanie has also experimented with coiling these overlapping rings to create a 3-dimensional rose. Her pattern is shared below.

3-D Rose using ANKARS Ring-on-ring Technique

rose of coiled ankars style tatted rings by Stephanie Wilson



Materials: 1 shuttle, size 20 thread and small bead for center



Abbreviations:



P or - picot

R ring

(x) number in parentheses is how many rings to make before moving to the next line of the pattern [(4) = 'make 4 of these rings'] If there is no number, make only one ring with that DS count before moving to the next line of the pattern.



Pattern:



NOTE 1: Allow rings to overlap - as if stacking the ring so that it overlaps the one immediately before it. You may have to 'coax' some of the smallest rings to overlap.



NOTE 2: Begin each ring as close as possible to the ring before it, leaving no bare thread space between rings.



R: 18 - 10



R: 10 + (to p of last ring made) 8 - 10 (4)



R: 10 + (to p of last ring made) 6 - 8



R: 8 + (to p of last ring made) 8 - 8 (4)



R: 8 + (to p of last ring made) 6 - 6



R: 6 + (to p of last ring made) 8 - 6 (4)



R: 6 + (to p of last ring made) 5 - 5



R: 5 + (to p of last ring made) 6 - 5 (3)



R: 5 + (to p of last ring made) 3 - 4



R: 4 + (to p of last ring made) 4 - 4 (3)



R: 4 + (to p of last ring made) 2 - 3



R: 3 + (to p of last ring made) 5



Cut, leaving long tail.



Thread small sewing needle with tail. Allow tatting to coil into a flower shape (encourage it a bit, if necessary). Using thread and sewing needle, thread tail between rings (where a thread space would be if we had left any bare thread space) until 'top' tail is on the underneath side of the rose. Tie thread/s and hide end/s. Sew a small bead in the center of the rose.



The inspiration for this experiment using ANKARS style rings was:
