Several weeks ago, watching this instructable TATTED NECKLACE I fell in love with this beautiful necklace.
But ... Surprise! The tutorial was poorly explained and unfinished.
Then I began to surf the internet, to learn needle tatting, look for patterns and uncover the secrets of this beautiful art manual.
Finally, after many tests and failed attempts, after many hours looking one solution to make the necklace, I managed to decipher how to create it.
It is for this reason I decided to share it with you all because, like me, many people had stopped asking posts to the author's instructable to finish loading, and for months we have not received a reply.
I hope you can understand it correctly, and you can finally make a nice necklace, for yourselves or to give away.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009
Step 1: BEADS NEEDLE & ADDING BEADS
This first step is very important!
Before starting the work, we have to introduce all the beads in the yarn that are going to need for our work. The beads stay in the yarn of the ball, waiting to be used when necessary.
If we are not sure of the exact total amount of beads that we need to work, you should make sure and make several more beads. It is better for us on beads that we are not missing.
To enter the beads in the yarn, I use several hours looking for a needle that would be adequate, but none of those I had in my house went well. So I decided to create my own beads needle.
It is very simple: We take a piece of thin nylon fishing thread, between 7 and 10 cm long, fold it in half and make a knot with both ropes by half the length. Then gently and with the help of a lighter, heat the tips of both to melt the nylon ropes and squeeze between your fingers to unite them. Ideally, we would be as you see in the picture.
