Tigereye Earrings

from Elizabeth's Lace
(11) Name: 'Other : Tigereye Earrings
Tigereye Earrings

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Tatting basics, tatting with two shuttles, hinding ends.

Pattern Description:

This is my own original tatting design, created as a pattern in pdf format. In size 20 thread, this motif will measure approximately 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/2" long (without ear wires). This listing is for a pdf pattern only, not the actual tatted earrings.

I would call this an intermediate level tatting pattern that uses two shuttles, rings, chains, picots, joins, and beads. The bead work is fully explained in the pattern.

The written long-hand instructions are in English. The pattern also contains a pictorial diagram of the earring with the starting point, stitch count and bead placement - so being able to read English is not mandatory - however if you are not familiar with adding beads, the written instructions may be necessary.

The pattern file size is approximately 200 KB, and is in pdf format. It is necessary to have Adobe Reader on your computer in order to open this file, but you can get that program for free at
