Cross celtic by Eileen Stafford [offsite link]
Here is a design by Eileen Stafford with a workout in split rings and interlaced tatting.
Cross Celtic Dianna Stevens [offsite link]
There has been some discussion on the Tatting mailing lists on the Internet about whether a needle is actually required for this complex design by Dianna Stevens, but I think it would certainly make the centre easier. This one requires some experience but is a wonderful design.

Here is another pattern on which to practise your cluny tatting, this time by Christiane Eichler.
Cross Davidīs by Heather Johnston [offsite link]
Here is a very imaginative design by Heather Johnston for a tatted cross bookmark which uses split rings and interwoven tatting for an unusual effect.
Cross Entwined Arms by Julie Patterson [offsite link]
This pattern is from the newly re-released book of tatted crosses from Julie Patterson of Australia with 30 pages of large photos, easy to read diagrams and step by step directions. There is a list of illustrated abbreviations and her diagrams and explanations of the split ring, split chain, and crossed, beaded picots are excellent.
Cross Flaviaīs by Edda Guastalla [offsite link]
This beautiful tatted cross pattern is on Edda Guastallaīs site. Again the instructions are in Italian and there is no diagram but the photos are clear and as she uses notational instructions the pieces should be reasonably easy to make.

Here is a very pretty little cross designed by Roger AKA Freedman. No photo
Cross God Bless America by Sheila [offsite link]
There is a really tiny cross on this site which would make a great key fob or other small decoration. BY Sheila.

Cross Sharonīs by Gillian Buchanan [offsite link]
This lovely cross was designed by your host for Sharon Fernandes in an online exchange. Sharon made me a really exquisite version of the Black Magic cross listed above.
Cross Simple Gillian Buchanan [offsite link]
This design was used in the Online Tatting Class recently, as it features the use of Shuttle Thread Joins otherwise known as Downward Joins. It is not particularly difficult to make otherwise although some of the finishing off is into rather tight corners.
