Again

Hmmm. I see the principle of muskaan's earring pattern but I found it quite difficult to get the earrings square and neat.

  1. That was quick :-) I like the bead colours against black !

    Jane there could be 2 general reasons I can think of ....
    1. Working with large rings is not easy -- they tend to skew when closing. Hence Patty's trick has been Extremely helpful to me.
    2. The thread. I believe a tightly twisted 6 ply thread such as Anchor Mercer Crochet Cotton has it's role to play in keeping the rings in shape.
    Don't know whether either of these iapplies, but that's all I can think of at present.

    1. I found that with the more tightly twisted Milford thread, large rings were difficult to get smooth, a less twisted thread worked better.

  2. Or may be I'll try to do a step-by-step pictorial .... This is not good publicity ;-P
    I do appreciate your trials, though. Thanks again :-)

    1. I know, sorry about that. I did contemplate not saying anything but I thought it's not good to only blog about successes! I think your pattern is fine, I hope someone else will do a better job than I did.

    2. No, don't get me wrong :-) I am thankful you posted. It gives me a chance to work harder to put across ideas & tuts so that they become easier to understand and also motivates someone to try it out.

  3. You're going to have a fantastic earring collection! I haven't tried the technique yet. It does look rather difficult to me.

  4. I can't tat well with black, and the good thing about earnings is they get separated when you put them on your face :)

  5. I don't tat - or wear - earrings, but I'm enjoying this discussion all the same. It's productive and that is a good thing for everyone.
