The Lace Mat

Pattern by Norma Benporath

Chart drawn by Jon Yusoff

I have finished row 2.  There was one place where I messed up and had to take a ring out and redo it.  I was able to hide the ends.  Here is a picture of what I have finished so far.

 It took me 24 minutes to complete one repeat of row 2.  For a total time of 3 hours and 12 minutes.  I didn't time row 1.  But I will be making more for snowflakes.

The Lace Mat

Pattern by Norma Benporath

Chart drawn by Jon Yusoff

I started with the chain and a paperclip, so I could do a slip ring and go to the next row with out cutting.

As you can see I did it.  Then came the next ring.  I am not sure I did it right but this is what I have so far.

I couldn't figure out how I should work it so I could go to the next row, so I just added a double thread to the first chain. At least I made it 2 rows.  This is a new idea changing the pattern to do slip rings and slip chains.

My Current Tatting Project is this doily from "Elegant Tatting Patterns" by Janet Carrol

This is the picture of what the completed doily should look like when it is finished.
I am working on the points now.  I haven't timed how long it takes to do one point yet.
Crowning Touch before points.
