Split Ring Core Join
[home] [gallery] [patterns] [how to tat lace] [shop] [tatty links] [contact]



Below is how you make a join from the bottom half of a split ring to a picot from a previously made element. It is slightly different join because of how the rings are placed and you have to be sure you do knot do the wrong kind of join or you will not be able to close the split ring.

After working the double stitches of the bottom half of a split ring up to the point of the downward facing picot, poke the hook through the picot you are going to join to and grab the core thread. Lift up a loop of the core thread through the picot, pass your shuttle #2 that is working the split ring. Tighten this core thread that is around your hand so that the core thread will pop back through the picot you are joining to and back into its tight position. You will notice the thread from the second shuttle is now wrapped around the core thread of the split ring. Snug up the threads and finish the split ring.
