Half Moon Dreaming

This pattern started life as a hanky corner in the wonder book The Tatter’s Treasure Chest. I’ve add a chain instead of the edging to turn it into a necklace.

If you make this, I’d love to see the pictures of your results!

To complete just the centre portion tie and weave in ends here.

To continue on to the chain of the necklace,
SR: 8/8
*C: make first half of the double stitch 5 times, followed by the second half 5 times. Repeat a further 4 times for 50 stitches
SR: 6/6
Repeat from * for desired length, finishing with a ring of 12 stitches instead of the split ring.
Tie and weave in ends.

Attach to start of the outer chain and repeat for the other side, making sure you add in a clasp on the final ring.

NB. If you don’t want to do split rings, you can add extra stitches in their place – tie a slip knot at points where the split ring would be so that the chains keep their shape.
