Step 1: What You'll Need
You will need:
-Size 10 cotton thread in black or I suppose brown
-Size 5 tatting needle or shuttle if you prefer
-Fabric Stiffener, starch or glue & water solution
-About 16" of chain, clasp and jump rings in preferred metal
-Jewelry pliers for attaching chain
You will also need basic tatting knowledge that can be acquired with my other beginning instructables.
Step 2: Start Tatting
Ring 3 double stitches(ds) 1 picot(p) 3ds close(cl) reverse work(rw)
Step 3: Many Chains
Chain(ch) 15ds cl rw Ch 10 1p 5 cl rw
ch 7 join the thread to the picot you just made by passing the needle through the loop and tying a knot without reversing work
ch 25ds join to picot on the ring cl tie a double knot and hide the thread ends.
Step 4: Side Two
Join the new thread to the top of the ring where we started to do the second side. Repeat the same stitch counts for the other side.
Once the tatting is done, you will want to press and shape the piece with steam and stiffen to your liking. I use Stiffen Stuff, spray the piece and then press.
Step 5: Add the Chain
I have a couple more pictures of this in my etsy listing here.
