Sue's Spring motif by Mary Maynard 2006

10 repeats of the ring
All the rings have 10 ds, just have the picots in different places

Close all rings firmly as they are small rings.
All chains in the first two rounds are 10 ds
Reverse work after each ring and each chain

Sue's Spring motif back by Mary Maynard 2006

Interlace first piece & push ring through space created in 2nd piece by chains. (Betty Alderson called this posting.) The two pieces should look like the bright coral image.

Joining Round shuttle & ball CTM
R: 5 + (2nd p 1st Motif R) 5 RW
Ch: 3 <-- 2> x 7, 3 RW
* R: 5 + (next p same R) 5
R: 5 + (next p next R) 5 RW
Ch: 3 <-- 2> x 7, 3 RW
Repeat from * around.
End with R: 5 + (last p last R) 5

Because last Ch will have been worked, cut that thread & TAT to hide that end + (base of 1st R) Cut & hide the last end.

Nearly any number of repeats from 8 to 12 would work depending on the finished size desired.

Note: After reading the tatting newsletter for June 6/7, 2019 about Mary Maynard's work, Sue Hanson was prompted to share a pattern by Mary that has not been made widely public. Please enjoy.
