2022 Palmetto Tatdays Day Lilly


Sorry I forgot to post the pattern for the Palmetto Tatdays.  I was looking at photos from the event this morning when I realised I forgot to post the pattern that goes with the kit that came in the grab bags!


20th Anniversary Day Lilly

Vicki Clarke 2022 victats@gmail.com

 

This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Palmetto Tat Days.  I looked up the flower for a 20th Anniversary and it’s a Day Lilly.   They are all different colors so feel free to experiment with different combinations.


Terms

R- ring

C- chain

lj- lock join

+ join

vsp- very small picot

SCMR-self closing mock ring

Materials

1 shuttle or needle

Thread color of your choice

Kit Contains: flower Sequin, 2 seed beads, Bent pin (I used pliers to bend the pin.  Wear protective glasses just in case)

 

Petals- make 2                                                                                                               

R             3 vsp 3 vsp 3

C             12

SCMR    4 p 4

C             12 lj (vsp) 12

SCMR    4 p 4

C             12 lj (vsp) 12

SCMR    4 p 4

C             12 join to beginning, hide ends

Assembly instructions:

Add 1 seed bead to pin, then add the petals so that the 2 motifs are offset and then add the sequin.  Before you add the 2nd seed bead put a dab of glue on the pin to hold the bead in place.  I recommend using E-6000.  Then slide the seed bead into place.  Now you have a mini–Day Lilly Pin!

Stripes

 

You will start at the middle stripes and then tat rows outward.  Then you will go back and tat the middle strip on the other side and tat outwards.   The flag does narrow a bit and if this bothers you then you can leave a bigger space between the chains (this is where you join above the rings)

Stripe 1

C             lj (2nd p from tip of Round 5) 8

R             6 p 6 +(p on tip of Round 5)  6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 + 6 p  6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 + 6 p  6 p 6

C             6 p 6 vsp 1

R             6 +(p on previous R)  6 p  6 p 6 hide ends

Stripe 2

C             lj (4th  p from tip of Round 5) 8

R             6 p 6 +(3rd p from tip of Round 5)  6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on previous R) 6 p 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above 1st  R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6 vsp 1

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (vsp of previous stripe) 6 p 6

Stripe 3

C             lj (6th  p from tip of Round 5) 8

R             6 p 6 +( 5th p from tip of Round 5)  6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R) 6 p 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above 1st R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (above next R of previous stripe) 6 p 6

C             6 p 6

R             6 +(last p on prev R)  6 + (vsp of previous stripe) 6 p 6

 For the opposite you will start from strip one EXCEPT all center picots of stripe 1 will join to the picot of the same ring on the first side.

 Please note that the chains will overlap the  next row.  I make sure all the chains are on the same side while tatting.

Coming Soon

I hoped to get this pattern finished in June during Pride Month unfortunately I did not succeed.  The first challenge was the colors since some of my thread was lost in the fire.  So the original sample did not follow the colors just the shape.  Even with this sample I hope you will excuse the fact that I don't use white thread.  Some of the colors I used size 20 Opera thread which comes out to a similar size as Lizbeth thread but I don't have white Opera thread.  The pattern is still being typed out but I'm tio happy with it to wait to share it.  The flag will be a gift to my friends Lisa and Heather.
