Another way of tatting around the turquoise embellishment. Last week I posted this, using 4 mm beads. The alternative, using all seed beads.
The foundation row is the same.
The next row: During this round, I will pull an extremely small picot (just enough to get a size 15 or 16 crochet hook in).
1.) Tat: 1 ds, slide up a seed bead (core thread) and 3 seed beads (working thread), 1.
2.) Lock join between the last cwj and the 1ds (foundation round)...you will pull a picot here.
3.) Slide up a seed bead (core thread)and Lock join between the 1 ds (foundation round) and the cwj...you will pull another picot here.
4.) Repeat steps 10 - 12 around.
Tat 10 ds, lock join to the thread on top of the single bead (core thread bead). When you get to the bail, tat the chain 7 - 3.
