Step 3: Body around Hourglass

The body is one big ring tatted around the hourglass.

Tat 3 double stitches and loop through, when you are looking down at it, the bottom left picot.

Tat 10 more double stitches and connect to the top left picot. You would have to pull the needle through to do this. Make sure to not pull your thread tight. As you can see in the second picture, leave the loop of the ring open so you can close your ring after tatting and connecting the body.

Putting your needle next to the end of the 10 double stitches, tat 6 double stitches. Close to the next picot going around the hourglass, the top right.

Tat 10 double stitches and attach to the last remaining picot.

Tat your last 3 double stitches and put your needle through the loop you left open, closing the ring. Pull it tight and the body should circle nicely. Knot.
WANT<br />This is awesome. I would wear it everywhere.
I think you need a black widow spider necklace :)
Very cute.
Thank you!
Totally cool! I love it even though spiders creep me out!
They creep me out too, and this spider does sometimes too when I just see it laying on the corner of the table.
This is so beautiful! THANK you a SO much for this instructable!
Thanks! Do you tat? I would love to see a picture of someones recreation of it!
makin' an effort to learn this winter. This just makes me that more excited. I Have to make this. :oD
This is way awesome, and looks like a good starter tatting project. I bet this would look neat on a headband or bracelet.
I think so too. You could probably creep people out with it on a headband. I'm just a big necklace person, so I tend to default to that.
I LOVE this!
Isn't it? And it is really easy to make!
