Tassels and Onions Bracelet by Vicki Clarke ?2018



tassels and onion rings bracelet by Vicki Clarke



Materials: Size 10 thread

Size 6 beads (you can change the bead size with no changes to the pattern)

2 shuttles or tatting needle and ball thread



Terms:

SR - split ring, which is notated by 5-5/5-5. The number on the left is the core thread (SH1), the number on the right is the wrapped thread (SH2)

+ join

lj - lock join

p - picot

C - chain

vsp - very small picot

ORJ - onion ring join. I suggest the one developed by Kaye Judt.

SOR - split onion ring

SH1, SH2 - shuttle one or shuttle two



Technique Suggestions:

I recommend using the technique at http://tathelper.blogspot.com/2014/05/my-perfectonion-ring.html?m=1 to start the onion ring or split onion ring.

When closing the SOR pass the core shuttle (shuttle 1) down through the ring so the thread is on the back of the work. Then complete the ring with a lock join
to the smaller ring by pulling a loop down through the vsp on the small ring and pass shuttle 1 through the loop. This combines the 2 rings and takes the place of the ORJ.

I found it worked best if I used a different shuttle for each ring.
