CHANCELLOR PRESS Beeton's Book of Needlework by Mrs. Isabella Beeton was originally published in Great Britain in 1870 by Ward, Lock and Tyler. This Tatted Rosette appears as #45 on page 41 of the 1986 reprint.


R = ring, CH = chain, - or p = picot, + = join, clr = close ring, dnrw = do not reverse ring, lppr = last picot of previous ring, lppch = last picot of previous chain.

Size 30 thread is suggested for the two outer round ands size 80 for the smaller petals of the center. Begin with the center using one shuttle and tat a strip of unjoined rings (without picots) in graduated size order.
R 9 clr dnrw leave no bare thread space. Repeat 4 more times.
R 15 clr dnrw leave no bare thread space. Repeat 4 more times.
R 21 clr dnrw leave no bare thread space. Repeat 4 more times.
R 27 clr dnrw leave no bare thread space. Repeat 4 more times.

Gather the rings into a rose-like circle. Twist the rings around a pencil or crochet hook to gather. Next sew the gathers together or use your shuttle thread and shuttle lock joins.

Consider this round to be a "backing" for the rosette.
Large R 4 - ( 5 - ) x9, 1 clr dnrw.
Draw shuttle thread over to the next picot on that same ring and make a shuttle lock join to it.
R 4 - 4 - 3 - 3 - 4 - 4 clr dnrw
Draw shuttle thread over to the next picot on that same ring and make a shuttle lock join to it.
R 4 + (join to lppr) 4 - 3 - 3 - 4 - 4 clr dnrw
Repeat for a total of 9 rings.
Or, complete 8 rings and then 9th ring a single shuttle split ring to climb into the last round.
Either way add on second thread for chain.

If you climb out with the split ring exit through the middle picot and begin chain/ring from there.
If the thread was cut then using 2 shuttles attach to a middle picot of ring from previous round and tat the small; outward facing ring.
R 4 - 4 - 4 - 4 clr dnrw
CH 5 + (join to lppr) 4 - 4 - 5 + (join to middle picot of previous round ring)
R 4 + (join to lppch) 4 - 4 - 4 clr dnrw
CH 5 (join to lppr) 4 - 4 - 5 + (join to middle picot of previous round ring)
Continue in like manner around.
Sew or use shuttle lock joins to attach the rosette to the center of this backing.

Consider using two colors of green thread for the backing section and bright flower colors for the rosette. And you can make the tatted ring strip for the rosette shorter or longer for a smaller or larger rosette. And making petite rosettes will give you room for lots of fancy picots.

Needleart 1921 edging #4 These patterns are from the "Needleart" magazine Vol.8 #3 published in 1921 on page 17 and continued on page 68. There are seven patterns of varying degrees of difficulties. The designs are intended for underwear but today's fashions would also be enhanced on outer wear as well. More this summer.
