SR: 7-1/7-1 CL
SH1:R:1+14-1 CL RW
SH2:R:1+14-1 CLl RW

Meandering Path Motif Diagram

This looks a to me a bit like a meandering path, so that is what I named it. It will work very well as part of a mat or large doily with several joined together.
I can post the written pattern as well if anyone wishes.

Incipient Snowflake

This first attempt at designing with software turned out rather well. Which is why the name, Incipient.

I used size 20 Manuela color #201 and 84 silver lined clear Delica beads. Additional beads can be added to the pattern in places of your choosing.

CTM 2 shuttles with beads on shuttle 2

sh1= shuttle 1

sh2= shuttle 2

sws= switch shuttles

R = Ring

CH = Chain

RW= Reverse Work

b = bead

AJ = Alligator join – pass one thread in front and one thread behind existing element

VERSION A

Rnd 1: start at the red arrow on the diagram

*sh2 R 3b3b1b1b1b1b3b3 do not rw

ch 10-3 rw

sws sh1 R 6-6-6 rw

sh2 ch 3+10 do not rw* repeat 5 times for a total of 6 rings and chains. Join last chain to the base of the first ring. Do not cut

Rnd 2:

AJ *RW ch10 RW

R 3b3b1b1b1b1b3b3 rw

ch 10 AJ* repeat 5 times for a total of 6 rings and chains. Join last ch to base of beginning ring.

VERSION B: substitute Self Closing Mock Rings for rings on round 1

VERSION C : start at the red arrow with a paper clip on the thread to create a small picot to join to later. Replace all rings in round 1 with small picots and move rings to round 2, use regular lock joins in round 2 instead of alligator joins.

Note: this design has a tendency to cup while tatting and needs to be blocked to lay flat, the cupping actually worked in my favor as I intended it for an ornament

Alternating Color Daisy Picot Flower

I discovered this while doing the Daisy Picot Stars for my daughters wedding.

This works well with a variegated thread.
the sample was made with size 20 Lizbeth thread in 115 springtime.

pull out 15" for the second shuttle thread, you can finger tat or wrap the thread onto a shuttle. This thread will be sh2 (you may need to take more off sh1 until you can get the color change where you need it.

ds = double stitch
dt = direct tat - do not flip

begin your pinch where there is a dramatic color change and finish wrapping your left hand.

starting with
sh1 1 ds
sh2 dt 9ds
sh1 2ds
sh2 9ds
sh1 2ds
sh2 dt 9ds
sh1 2ds
sh2 9ds
sh1 2ds
sh2 dt 9ds
sh1 2ds
sh2 9ds
sh1 1ds
