Picture of Tatted Lace Corsage Bracelet
This is one of my classic designs, a perfect immortal flower corsage for mother's day, prom, weddings, whatever. Because of the connections between pieces I'd call this an intermediate design.

Step 1: What You'll Need

Picture of What You'll Need
You will need:
-Size 10 cotton thread in two different colors, I used black and red
-Size 5 tatting needle or shuttle if you prefer
-Scissors
-small steel crochet hook for joins
-hook and eye

You will also need basic tatting knowledge that can be acquired with my other beginning instructables.

Hi! I've long admired your work. I'm a relatively new shuttle tatter, but I'm getting pretty good. I'm on two Facebook tatting groups, and one group has a lot of international participation (Italy). It seems they have wonderful Ankars thread available in Italy - so I ordered some Penny 30 to try. Have you tried any polyester threads? If so, where do you get them in the USA? https://www.facebook.com/groups/167073436674554/

Thanks so much! No ,Sorry I've never tried those polyester threads though there seems to be a lot of talk about them lately, so I've no idea where to get them.

What am I doing wrong? When doing the 4th flower on the end the picot for the last join always twists, the ring is on the inside, when I try and turn it over the picot twists. Can you help please.

You have brought a new love to my life. I wish I had the talent to come up with such beautiful patterns. I'm only good at following and making minor adjustments...

Hey! Thanks for posting your pattern. I've got the flower down pat but having trouble starting the ends (I.e. hook and eyes....I've followed the instructions and I've gotten a mess...obviously I'm not doing it right.

Given that I am a beginner (1 week tatting today), is there any chance you can post a couple more pictures to this part....I don't know anyone who tatts here in Brisbane to ask or demonstrate for me.

Thank you so much for any assistance you may offer me.
TotusMel (author)  lhorvath12 years ago
I'm afraid I don't have any more photos that could help. This is definitely not a beginner project and adding hooks and eyes can be a bit fiddly even when you are experienced. So, I would suggest working the end piece without the hook and eye, working a chain of 9ds instead until you feel comfortable enough with the pattern to add the hooks.

Hi totusmel,
You are the one who made me (who thinks she can never do laces) a tatting lover though I think I've got a little talent for it. For a few days I'm trying to replicate tattings you posted on youtube. And I figured out that I can better understand from a video tutorial. If you have this bracelet's video tutorial I'll be very glad. :).....

Thanks for "being a teacher" from thousands of miles a way from my home :)

Greetings from Turkey....

Alright, I have to make this now!

First thank you for sharing your designs with us :D As I was reading through I noticed this and wanted to ask in case someone doesn't catch it in time while attempting this:
In the first ring, 2 double stitches(ds) 1 picot(p) 2ds 1p 2ds 1ds <--- should be a 1p correct?

TotusMel (author)  Sandi763 years ago
You are correct, I will fix it at once, thanks.
Dear tatter, i am trying to download this but wont let me it keeps asking me to sign in..
TotusMel (author)  kittytatty3 years ago
You can only download the pdf if you're a pro member I believe. Otherwise you just have to go step by step on the site.
