Tatting Necklace ( with pattern)

This is my tatting necklace with little black pearl beads in joining picots. It is very easy pattern to do with tatting.

I am starting love using shuttle, and have learned two methods of holding it.

 close look at beads 

The pattern of this necklace:
*R : 3ds, ( P, 3ds) 3 times  CL , RW.
CH :10ds,  P, 10dc , RW.
R: 3ds, P, 3ds to middle picot of last ring, 3ds, P, 3ds. CL*
Repeat those three steps

Note ,
1)I have put the bead in joining between two rings.
2)I have used cotton thread size 20, and shuttle as you see in the picture.
Happy tatting :-)

Large tatting motif (shuttle)

In this motif, I have learned to use shuttle smoothly . I also have learned the continuous method, and the magic trick of hiding the end of thread. Also I have learned to read the written pattern .Still want to learn graphic pattern which I prefer more, and also need to work on the picots ,and distances so motif will be more accurate.
One funny situation happened when I am working with this green shuttle, my 5years old niece asked me " what this is green thing?" I told her it is a needle. She answered No it is a green leaf. I told her we don't use the leaf to work with thread Dodo. She answered me Oh yes that is why this green leaf is a magic leaf. LOLLOOOLLL

By the way this is a free motif  called "Abigail"
Here is the link for it

My First first first tatting motif

Needle motif

This is my First tatting motif using tatting needle. Using tatting needle is easy, and makes tatting interesting.
I use book to start learning tatting, and I think it is lovely lace art.

Shuttle motif
This is my first tatting "motif" using shuttle. Shuttle is so so difficult for me to use.lol. My fingers hurt me so much from my practicing using shuttle. I Finally have learned using it. It is true that I still have difficult to deal with it, but I really want to use a shuttle in a perfect way.
Of course I saw some videos on Youtube, and there are some wonderful ladies who learn how to deal with shuttle, but only practice will teach me the tricks of hold it, and use it in an easy way.
Any way wanted to share that little experience with you.
