Hello Tatters!

I have encountered a vintage needlework series about which I know very little. It is the Dorothy Bradford Series. #14 of her series included tatting. But only a very few patterns are featured.

Page 6 fig 22 shows two variations of a simple edging. The tatted elements are a simple ring and chain or cloverleaf and chain repeat. What makes it different is that the rings on one side are joined to picots on a picot-edged ribbon. On the opposite side the chains join to the ribbon. So what you've got is an instant bookmark, ribbon down the middle and all ready for gift-giving.

Although printed in 1915, this book has timeless tatting patterns. Page 10 showcases a square doily for which the directions are given on page 9. With a little study this doily can be tatted in one pass, too.

I suggest that we exit the 4 ring center with a split ring then begin the chain which surrounds them, using SH2 to throw off the corner rings. The last corner ring can be a split ring also. Climb out into the 3rd ring of the 5 rings which make the next corners and continue the ring and chain repeat. The last chain of this row will need a very short split chain and then exit again with a split ring into the last row.

An easy piece, multiples could be joined together for larger doily, tablecloth of even a fashionable tatted vest.

Here's the latest article from the Tatting site at BellaOnline.com.

Mardi Gras Mask Tatted Jabot
Just imagine this jabot from Sophie La Croix's "Old and New Designs in Tatting, Book 11" in the traditional Mardi Gras colors, purple which represents justice, green which represents faith, and gold which represents power.
