There is a pdf at the bottom of the page for those of you who prefer to print off patterns.
You can download a pdf here.
UPDATE...we've exceeded the limit of downloading for my Keep and Share files so I am posting it on the Fringe Element Tatters facebook group and in the Beginer Tatter Facebook Group.

For tomorrow shuttle tatters will need to have 2 yards of red thread wound on a shuttle CTM with the ball.
If you are a needle tatter you will thread your needle with your usual length of tail...using red thread of course! Use the size of needle that works best for you.
Just a word for needle tatters, we will be using lock joins. Many needle tatters often just pass their needle through the picot when they see a lock join. It is my recommendation that you don't do that. The secondary benefit of a lock join is to stabilize the core tension so that one yank doesn't pull things all to @#!$@.
*****For those who don't know, CTM stands for continuous thread method which just means don't cut the thread between the shuttle and ball.
