It started out nice and comfortable this morning, but has turned blistering hot this afternoon. I am so ready for Autumn!!! Since it was starting to heat up during my usual morning tatting time, I found myself drawn to fall colors. This time Anchor #1305 caught my eye. The beautiful golds make me think of crisp days with crunchy leaves underfoot!
I started out with a foundation motif of 6 interlocking chain rings:
The count for the foundation is: 15 - with bead added 15 CL, tie, cut & hide ends.
To tat the next round run needle through - with bead to one side (join here for shuttle tatters) and CH the following around the motif:
3 (5 graduated -s) 3 CL Join to other side of bead.
4 - with bead added 4 CL Join to next - at base of bead.
This is a very quick and easy motif. Hope you enjoy it.
