The Tatting at the Palmettos Tat Days 2013 was Angelic! Here is just one of the many tatted pieces seen at Tat Days. This pattern is shared by Kathy Hodge.

GUARDIAN ANGEL by Kathy Hodge 2013©

He will give His angels charge of you, to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11 While I was undergoing chemo and radiation for breast cancer in 2010, a dear friend gave me a book entitled Angels Everywhere, by Lynn Valentine. This book contains numerous accounts of miraculous events that point to the existence o f guardian angels. While I have not yet experienced an event where I felt the presence of a heavenly angel, I personally believe I have encountered many human angels here on earth. These people are kind, unselfish, and loving beyond measure. Thus, I was inspired to design this little Guardian Angel pattern. I hope you will enjoy it.
Size 20 thread: Thread is wound CTM
Sh1 Wind 3 yards of thread on shuttle one with 10 #11 seed beads
(beads will be used on the last ring, so keep them on thread closest to shuttle)
Sh2 Wind 6 yards of thread on shuttle two
(Using the above yardage, there is very little thread left at the end. Depending on
your gauge, you may want to wind another half or full yard on each shuttle)
CR = Center Ring, MP = Mock picot LJ = Lock Join BP = beaded picot DNRW = do nor reverse work

CR 3 - 4 - 5 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 5 - 4 - 3 clr RW
C (Mock picot) 3 LJ to 1st picot on CR DNRW (optional: you may wish to use a magic thread on this chain for hiding end threads)
C 2 - (x 12) 2 - 4 LJ to next picot on CR DNRW (top left wing)
C 4 + (to last picot on previous chain) 2 - (x 14) 2 LJ to next picot on CR DNRW

Repeat from * to * two more times, but on last chain sequence after skirt “ruffle” edge, do not leave mock picots as this is the outer edge of the skirt.

C 4 + (to last picot on previous chain) 2 - (x 12) 2 LJ to next picot on CR DNRW (top right wing)
C 3 LJ (Optional: You may also use a magic thread on this chain by placing it in reverse order as you tat. This will allow you to hide the other end thread)
