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!

My first finished piece of needle tatting is this necklace. I’ve adapted an edging and corner pattern by Mary Konior which she has called Celandine, and added swarovski beads to make this piece which is worked in size 10 Anchor mercer crochet cotton. The necklace is made in three sections, and don’t make the mistake I did – do the central rosette first! You need – 1 clasp (two halves), 19 small beads, one large bead, size 10 thread and a tatting needle. R : ring C : chain ds : double stitch p : picot j : join smb : small bead RW :Read More →
