Tatted Pearl Mat Part One

A simple knot to tie three shuttles together, two colors can be the same. And one shuttle can be a ball of thread.
I used three shuttles.

  Leaving one of the three shuttles out, as you begin a chain of 5 double stitches divided by 2 picots, then trim your hidden threads.

Form a U shape, and drag the thread we put aside at beginning over to form the next U on opposite side. In this case the purple thread.  Note keep that single thread a bit short, it will stretch a bit. 

Repeat to form the pearls of the chain to a length you desire,  Wait here for next instructions I will post shortly, or you can try to go on too next row on your own.  

This was done with two variegated  threads and red I did shoe lace trick at times but really don't recommend, cause I was originally trying to clean off shuttles..
