Half-Circles!

February 15, 2012 3:14 pm

This week I’m getting started on the next part of the tea cloth from Priscilla #2.  This section:  Half-circles.  These half circles are the space fillers between the larger motifs of round 4.  Surprisingly, I didn’t have to make many changes to the pattern as written.  The only difference was that the original pattern called for 4 stitches between the rings of the half circle part and I did 2.  Could be this is because of the changes I made in earlier rows.  Could be just another effect of the smaller joining picots of modern tatting, but it was an easy change and seems to have worked.

7 more of these and then I’ll tackle the oblong motifs that surrond this center part of the tea cloth.  I suspect there will be lots of changes involved in these motifs, mostly because the directions are so vague and incomplete.  Also, it calls for ridiculously long chains between the rings and I just can’t see how that’s going to work.  I’ve started on the next “real” version of the tea cloth, but haven’t really made enough progress for a picture.  Maybe I’ll have something more substantial in the next couple days.  Here’s one more picture of the half circle that better shows their placiment in the piece.
