Change of Color for Purse Instructions

After the mess with 4 different colors on 4 shuttles, time to add the next round.

There are 4 larger rings that connect with 2 picots, you should have 24 rings with 24 picots

Now the mignonette tatting with one shuttle begins, making a ring of 2 double stiches connected to picot 2ds and close
you will want to measure 1 cm of length as you go around.
This does not have to be exact but try to be at least.  I stitch the end in, and cut.

when you come all way round jump up like here

The yellow arrow shows the ring I use to find the single ring so each side can be marked where to place 2 rings to expand so can lay flat for next round.
I bought extra safety pins with out coil  and can send the first 4 people some that email me at"".
They are small but great for tatting projects

It looks a little odd on the second round but keep the 1cm length as you can see it slides and straightens out
by this third round you increase the length to 1.3 at the least and try to keep it close to that by checking your guess every so often.

This is the last row of mignonette tatting now and to make purse we need two. will show next step in next post
Even if you don't make this purse I thought you would enjoy seeing how it's done!
