Valeire Square

Patterns based on a square motif from Tatted Yoke No. 4 in Fifteen Tatted Yokes and Camisoles Finished on Satin, Book 9, by Anna Valeire, published by E. C. Spuehler in the early 1900s.

Round 1: (Note that there are NO joins in this round.)
*R 8-8, cl. R 8-8, cl, rw.
Ch 5-5, cl, rw.*
Repeat from * to * until you have 4 pairs of rings and four chains.

Use the alligator join to climb out of round 1 and into round 2.

Round 2: (Note that you are joining adjacent rings together by joining into the picot of two rings at the same time.)
**Ch 2-2-2-2-2-2+(join two adjacent rings together)
Ch 2-2-2-2-2-2+(join into the space at the base of the next pair of rings)**
Repeat from ** to ** until you have joined back where you started this round. Finish as desired.

I can't believe I am the first to comment on this post because this ice cream cone is so adorable. I can't remember how I had the good fortune to stumble upon your blog...maybe it was from Georgia Seitz's site with your ice cream cone pattern there. I so adore it. I tatted it up and I am posting it on my blog with a link to your pattern and giving you due credit for the pattern. I hope that's okay. Please let me know if it's not. Stop by my blog and visit sometime. I'm also my tatted version of your pattern my page at eTatters. Just wanted to let you know ~TattingChic :)
