Split rings and cabone rings (a late revelation)

In my last post I mentioned I was about to order Jon’s Tatted Snowflake patterns. Well, I did – and to my delight the PDF arrived super-speedily. (Thank you Jon)

As I’ll have to make these patterns up with out the aid of the internet (*panic*) I thought I’d have a bit of a browse on Jon’s site to read her excellent tutorials. Actually, I can already make mock rings and split rings – I just haven’t used them much as yet, but I thought I’d have a go at split chains.

All day I’ve been thinking about this. I sat down to follow the photos, and about 5 mins in, I thought ‘Hang on! This is like tatting around a ring!’

Shocked at the sheer brilliance of my revelation I popped over to Intatters… to find that everyone there knew that already 🙂

Still. It must mean I’m getting better slowly. At least I spotted it!

No pics – I’m using size 80 practise thread for some insane reason, which is a bit tricky to photograph in this light with my camera. You’ll just have to take my word for it!
