Wednesday Weekly Challenge #32 Tatted Roman Cross
Last month, Shuttlebirds discussed making some tatted crosses for the congregation of the church we meet at as a thank you for allowing us to use their facility. I looked around but didn’t find a pattern that fit the idea I had in mind so I started working one out in my head. I wanted the pattern to start at the base so I could easily turn it into bookmark but I also wanted an optional ring at the top so I could make it into a pendant in smaller sized threads.
You will need a pretty full shuttle for the center color, I ran out twice while making the final sample, the second time on the last ring. As you can see in the picture, I just did the shoelace trick and did the final ring in the exterior color.
This is a great pattern to work on the go, the chains are almost all the same and the ring counts are relatively easy to remember.
Also, I tried to put the whole thing on a one page PDF to make it easier to keep a copy; Tatted Roman Cross. If you like or hate it, please let me know.
I hope you have a great time, and I would love to see pictures.
