Baby Bib Edging Daniela Mendola
Daniela Mendola's Baby Bib Edging
Daniela's Motif 3 is shown with a sample of three flowers, a diagram marked with the double stitch count and an illustration showing a possible use of an edging on a baby's bib. Each of these simple motifs has five rings and a bead into the center. It is easy to enhance the simple motif with five rings if we use two colors to make it and add a focal bead (perhaps in a third color)in the center.
In the first smaller motif each ring is made in this way:
R 3ds - 1p - 6ds - 1p - 6ds - 1p - 3ds. Close. Do not reverse work (dnrw.)
R 3ds + (join to last picot of previous ring)6ds - 1p - 6ds - 1p - 3ds. Close, dnrw.
The last ring joins to the first ring. To avoid the twisted picot, please use the folded join method.
Repeat for a total of 5 rings and secure ends.
The alternating motif is larger. For this one, each ring is made in this way:
R 4ds - 1p - 8ds - 1p - 8ds - 1p - 4ds. Close. Do not reverse work (dnrw.)
R 4ds + (join to last picot of previous ring) - 8ds - 1p - 8ds - 1p - 4ds. Close. Do not reverse work (dnrw.)
Repeat for a total of 5 rings. and secure ends.
For variation, Daniela reversed the colors of each motif and applied the big motif near the name embroidered on the baby bib. She also inverted the colors. If working in one color, the tatter may choose to do these flowers is one pass using the split ring method. For example, using two shuttles four rings, then bring both shuttles together to tat one split ring to climb out to the next motif. The new motif (remember the double stitch count changes) begins with a split ring. Then tat one ring with the first shuttle and changing to the second shuttle, tat two rings. Next then bring both shuttles together to tat one split ring to climb out to the following motif.
