Hens and chicks frame with Liz Metallic threads

I am working on a "Fabric Book" and thought a melallic frame might work with this little iron on picture I had.
Diane sent me samples of thread and 5 yards just made it!
I use color 314 Mocha Brown.  Also plan on using some mistakes I cut away and ribbon 

 Here is the pattern, One shuttle, all inner rings are 2 double stitches picot 1double stitch picot 2 double stitches, close ring. always connect picot to next ring.
Top and bottom rings are: 4 double stitches and picot 4 ds. and close ring. then make enter ring and back up to top large ring of 4 connect to (4p4) then 2ds and the p. separated by 1ds and 3ds picot 4 then close ring make another inner ring and back up to final top ring of 4p4. then more inner rings. 
 This actual frame is not perfect the side outer rings are not quite centered but the pattern is correct. I will be making more of these and Robin did a great review on all the colors, so far I can only add one thing, to get thinner thread like 40, I will try to separate the strands for thinner thread and see  how that works out.


Have a great week tatting away :)

  4. Cute! The metallic color works well with the picture. I’m curious to see if you have any luck separating the threads to get a smaller size. I think three cords (out of the six total) would do the trick, but am wondering if you can maintain the twist and have the threads stick together enough to tat with them.

    1. Very good point, I have added threads to get thicker ones but not other way round😁

    Not sure if you can split the thread, would be interested to see how you do it.
    Your fabric book should be lovely when you have finished it.
