An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

These motifs are classified as one-shuttle designs, but they require a ball thread for the chains. One interesting point about the book (The Tatted Artistry of Teiko Fujito) is that the photographs sometimes differ from the diagrams. In the first motif, the diagram shows the top rings as separate, whereas the photo shows them joined. I followed the photo to make the motif more stable. In motif 8, top right in this photo, the diagram shows the picots of the centre rings joined, whereas in the photo they are loose, which gives the middle a fluffier look.
