Due to popular request I am giving this pattern on the understanding that you may find it difficult without me looking over your shoulder. To try and help I have written it out in very long hand but this has not yet been tested to see if it is OK. I'm afraid I can't offer any more help.
MATERIALS:YELLOW CENTRE: Put about 18 inches of yellow thread on the shuttle and do not cut away from the ball. Ring 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 close, RW, Make a lock stitch to form a false picot ( I counted this as the first ds of the next chain.) continue on round, lock joining to each picot on the ring in turn: (Ch 1 - 1, LJ,) 10 times, fasten off to the false picot instead of LJ the final time.
In all the same thickness have 4 balls of thread.....yellow, white, red, green.
This pattern has no decorative picots so make all picots small, just big enough to take a join.
There are three sections
It is best to fasten off (i.e. tie and sew in ends) each section before adding the next section. If you are not sure about any of the Abbreviations I have used look at the Abbreviations in TAT FIVE
- The Yellow Centre.
- The White Rose.
- The Red rose and green leaves.
Fasten off and sew in ends.
