Introduction: Tatted Princess Necklace and Earring Set

I needed something to wear with the beautiful pink dress I wanted to wear for Marvalous Monday at work.  So I whipped together this earring and necklace set.  It only requires regular rings and chains and is pretty simple to put together.  And it is, of course, pink!

Step 1: Supplies

You just need the regular old tatting basic supplies
  1. Crochet Cotton Size 10
  2. Tatting Needle Size 5
  3. 2 Earrings
  4. 4 - 6 Jump Rings
  5. Clasp

Step 2: The Necklace

Time to get started tatting:
  1. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. rw.  (2 ds, 7 picots sep. by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  2. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw.
  3. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2  cl. k. rw. (2 ds, 4 picots sep by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  4. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw. 
  5. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 connect to center (4th) picot of previous ring 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. do not rw.
  6. Repeat 1 - 5 until the desired length.  You will end with #5. 

Your necklace is done.  It is going to be really wavy-like, so you are going to want to at least iron it if not iron it, starch it, and iron it again.

Step 3: Earrings

I needed something to go along with the necklace, so I whipped up these earrings to match.  These are almost the same as the necklace except you don't repeat the pattern and you extend the pattern a little.
  1. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. rw.  (2 ds, 7 picots sep. by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  2. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw.
  3. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2  cl. k. rw. (2 ds, 4 picots sep by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  4. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw.
  5. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 connect to center (4th) picot of previous ring 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 cl. k. rw.
  6. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. rw. 
  7. R 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 2  cl. k. rw. (2 ds, 4 picots sep by 2 ds, finish with 2 ds.)
  8. Ch 4 - 4 - 4 k. connect to the bottom of the first ring you created, double knot and hide the ends.

Step 4: Finish It All Off

To finish it all up, I ironed all the pieces.  Then I spray starched them and let them dry.  (Before I spray starch them, I like to make sure all the stitches are laying right and I pull on the decretive picots and make sure they are laying right as well.)  Once they were dry, I ironed them again.

To attach my findings, I decided to put two jump rings on each end of the necklace (partly to make sure things lined up, partly to make it just a smidge longer), and added the clasp to one end.

For my earrings I just attached an earring to a jump ring and then attached that to the tatted ring that had no picots.  You are done!  Put them on and be a pink princess!

Beautiful work!!!! Question...after you close your ring or chain, do you knot it before you reverse your work? I learned to reverse the work and then knot Does it make any difference? I'Ve only been needle tatting for two (2) months and keep trying new patterns to try and get better. Thank you so much for sharing this exquisite necklace and earrings.

I usually do, I put K if I knot. It reverses which side each string is on. So it does make a difference when you reverse your work if you are using that as your reference for how to line up your work.

THESE ARE CUTE EARRINGS. I WANT TO TRY THESE.

Thanks! I hope you get a chance to make them :)

I crochet, some kniting, teaching my self to tat, and interested in crochet wire jewelery. Thank you for posting this beautiful work. I likly will be refering to this site often

Knot. So when you see that you want to make a knot in your work.

Love this set - I haven't tatted for about 40 some years and just got back into it using the needle method rather than the shuttle. I love it. Can't wait to try your pattern. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
