Flora Earrings

from Elizabeth's Lace
(11) Name: 'Other : Flora Earrings
Flora 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 little motif will measure approximately 7/8" wide and 1" tall (without beads or ear wires).

I would call this an intermediate level tatting pattern that uses two shuttles, rings, chains, picots, joins, lock joins, and beads. The bead work is fully explained and involves learning to "sew" a bead cluster onto your tatting, a method of adding beads I really enjoy.

The written long-hand instructions are in English. The pattern contains a scan of the earrings with the stitch count laid over the scan, as well as a pictorial diagram of the bead cluster technique in the pattern.

The pattern file size is approximately 156 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

Materials:

  • tatting shuttle, thin large-eye needle, very tiny crochet hook, 4 yds tatting thread, 18 seed beads and two coordinating larger beads.
