Easter Egg decoration is done by a number of my friends. I don’t do the coloured Eggs so well. Realizing that and thinking about my Tatting I designed a “Easter Thingie”. Here it is. First without any ears.
Body: 2 Rows or Rings and Chains
Top Row; R 3-3-3-3; C10-10 . Repeat until it surrounds the Egg. In this Example it has 7 repeats.
Lower Row: R 3-3+3-3(join to picot of the Chain); C 8 -8 . Repeat until all picots are joined to.
Ears: Clover leaf of 3 rings; R 3-3-3-3-3-3; R 3+3-3-3-3-3-3-3; R 3+3-3-3-3 -3 with additional small Rings tatted into the base of the Two Smaller Clover leaf rings to provide support to attaching to the Egg.
All the tatting is glued to the Egg with a quick drying, transparent craft glue.
