Sporting your colors in tatting

School begins again here in Arkansas in the next few weeks, and arms and ankles need some tatting. My latest tatted bracelets are made with DMC cotton embroidery floss using finger tatting and 2 shuttles. I chose to try a design in embroidery thread because of the wonderful selection of colors available in DMCs colorfast floss.

Those are really cute! I like the chunky look of them, and you're right, DMC floss has so many beautiful colors.

Eliz,
Those are wonderful & sure to catch eyes of those even passing by! Thankyou for sharing them with all of us.

I think I need to make some of those in our school colors, green and gold. Is this your own pattern? I love it!

Thanks. Yes, Diane, I designed it this week. It is a bit fiddly (is that a word?) to tat, but not bad if I'm making several at a time. I had to add several notations to my diagram as I had trouble remembering some important moves.

Hi Eliz, It looks really interesting. I love how you designed the two loops and tassel as the closure.
