Today I’d like to show you how to tat flower earrings. This tutorial is good for those who’s already tried tatting. A pattern, to begin with.
The number of petals is up to you. I made a flower with five petals.
Plait the first petal: 7 knots, a picot, 10 knots, a picot with a seed bead, 10 knots, a picot, 7 knots.
Begin a new petal, tat 7 knots and join them with a free picot of the first petal. Then go on tatting using the same pattern.
As a result, you’ll have such a flower. You can finish there, but I’d rather tat the second layer.
Plait 9 knots, join them to a side picot of the first row. Then plait 9 more knots and tighten them. That’s what you have as a result:
Make 4 more such petals fixing them to the picots of the first row.
At the end, you’ll have this wonderful flower. Take the threads away and bead the flower to your taste.
Thank you for your attention!
