Tatting Pattern by Anne Orr

This pattern can be found in Tatting with Anne Orr. Copyright has expired on Anne’s wonderful patterns.

A very striking pattern suitable for absolute beginners.

Instructions

  • Clover leaf
    • Ring: 5ds, p, 5ds, p, 5ds
    • Ring: 5ds, join to last p of previous ring, (5ds, p)x2, 5ds
    • Ring: 5ds, join to last p of previous ring, 5ds, p, 5ds
  • Chain: 4ds, (p, 4ds)x8
  • * Clover leaf
    • Ring: 5ds, join to last p of chain, 5ds, p, 5ds
    • Ring: 5ds, join to last p of previous ring, (5ds, p)x2, 5ds
    • Ring: 5ds, join to last p of previous ring, 5ds, p, 5ds
  • Chain: (4ds, p)x2, 4ds, join to free p of centre ring of preceding clover, (4ds, p)x5, 4ds
  • Repeat from * until you reach the desired length, joining the last chain to the free p of the centre ring of the last clover.

This insertion piece can be lengthened and shortened to fit whatever application you are needing it for. You will find that this pattern adapts very easily to a bookmark – simply create a piece that is about 20cm long and loop through a tassel when complete.

This insertion would look very nice if you used a green for the chains and a bright colour for the clovers, or flowers. Experiment!
