A Very Canadian Tat-a-long 202 Day 1

Hi Everyone,

Its that time of year again!  
I am holding the Very Canadian Tat-a-long starting today.  It will be followed by the 4th of July Tat-a-long.  The files will be available on the Fringe Element Tatters, Just Tatting, Friends of Tatting Corner and the Needle Tatting: For Beginners Group on Facebook.
Or you can just follow below!

For A Very Canadian Tat-a-long you will need size 20 Lizbeth thread in yellow, brown (or grey or blue) and red.  Size 10 clear beads, a bangle, and a 5/8 plastic cabone ring.
For the 4th of July Tat-a-long you will need suze 20 thread in red, white and blue.  Size 10 beads in white, black and red.
If you have other sized threads you will need to fiddles a bit with the beads.

Day 1


Size 20 Lizbeth in red, yellow and brown (could also be blue or grey)

Size 10 clear beads


5/8 inch plastic cabone ring



C- chain

R- ring

vsp- very small picot

W- make double stitiches around the cabone ring.  Jane Eborall has a great tutorial for shuttle tatters on her technique page

For needle tatters I recommend, she has a tutorial on the blog.  There are also excellent Youtube videos

Start with the 5/8 inch plastic cabone ring

*W      3

R         6 vsp 6*

Repeat from * to * until you have 12 rings

Hide end

Needle tatters-  I think its probably easiest to make true rings with this kind of pattern. 

Shuttle Tatters-  you do not reverse work between the wraps and the rings.
