Floating rings

Floating rings, or tatting poetry. Tips for beginner tatters. Part 5. Part 4 of my articles for beginning tatters can be read here:

Hello everyone!

In this article I will try to tell in detail how to make Floating Rings. Oh, what a romantic name this element has! And although this verse is not about needlework, there is a mention of these rings here:
Friday Saturday rags of clouds
floating rings driven through the sky
and fluorescent halos
celestial laundry tossed.
Where did I find this? You will not believe! On Amazon, haha. This is a quote from the poetry textbook “Unlocking the poem” by Ottone M. Riccio and Ellen Beth Siegel. Yes, yes, don’t be surprised. Turns out there are textbooks for everything you want to learn. You just need to be able to “enter the correct search words.” That’s what my eldest son says. He is Principal Solutions Architect and Google Cloud Certified Fellow. Therefore you can believe him, I assure you!

So, from the novel, let’s move on to practice. Let’s make a little round motif. For clarity, I made a graphic diagram and filmed a video lesson. And of course, instructions with videos are made for shuttles and needles. That’s right, in plural. Because to perform such an element you will need two shuttles or two needles. By the way, please note that the needles must be the same thickness.


You can download the PDF file by following the link:
Or just take a screenshot of the screen. But on the screen, the link to the video will be inactive. Oh, I forgot to say. My cat Phil tried very hard and helped me work on the video!
