And here is a picture of something I am playing around with at the moment. I have posted it on the ‘intatters forum’ to see if it is a technique people know about and if it has a name. It makes really pretty frilly rings by using a double thread around the hand when making rings.
The first one I did in yellow, and it looks nice. The second one I used blue to show that two threads are used and flipped when picots and DS are made. I wonder if I could use three threads?
Anyway, please feel free to comment and let me know if this technique has a name. I would love to see some patterns using this and will try over the Christmas holiday season to come up with a pattern to highlight these frilly rings.
As always, happy tatting
