The pattern for this little braid appeared in the Anna Burda magazine in May 1984. The original method was to use one shuttle and leave a little bit of bare thread between rings. A better way is to tat it using two shuttles and split rings.
SR 1: 2-6/4
SR 2: 4/2-6
The thread I've used is Cebelia 20 which I dyed myself. I used green to make the braid look like little leaves, but of course any colour could be used.
This is lovely. I just may have to try this today. Split rings - good idea!ReplyDelete
cute, I like updating older patterns. those bare threads often look unfinished to me.ReplyDelete
The bare thread was hidden at the back of the work, but even so, it could look a bit scruffy.Delete
Lovely simple patter with a lot if punch!ReplyDelete
Cute little pattern!ReplyDelete
What will you do with it? Is that a sort of edging?
This one is really just to keep in my handbag for odd moments, but yes it could be used as an edging. I've also used it in a bigger thread with a flower at one end to make a bookmark.Delete
Lelia did bring this pattern with her today to Tollway Tatters. I think I may have to give this one a try... good practice for my split rings!ReplyDelete
Yes, a pretty way to practice!Delete
This looks great! I have the perfect place to use it, too. Thanks.ReplyDelete
