Easter Frames


After seeing Riet's tatted frames hanging on her little tree, I decided to make these Easter Egg shaped and hang them on my Easter tree. I used Caron Wildflowers in Springtime for the first frame. The 2nd is size 20 with the chains done in the same Caron. Here's my pattern:
First tail and half of bow.
Tie a knot between shuttle & ball or 2 shuttles in one color or 2. Chain 18 RW (Reverse work) R27^ (small picot) 5. RW Chain 6 RW
Rings 1-29 All rings are the same,(Ring #1) R5+ (LPPR) 3-2-2-3-5. RW Ch 5
#2. Ring RW then Ch 5 RW #3 Ring, RW Ch 5 RW #4 Ring, Ch 5 #5. Ring, Ch 5 #6. Ring, Ch 5 #7. Ring, Ch 6 #8. Ring, Ch 6 #9 Ring, Ch 6 #10. Ring, Ch 6 #11. Ring, Ch 6 #12. Ring, Ch 5 #13. Ring, Ch 5 #14. Ring, Ch 4 #15. Ring, Ch 4 Now reverse the order until you have 29 rings, end with ch 6 Other half of bow, R5+ (to Ring #29) 27. Join to base of first ring, Tail: Ch 18. Tie a knot at the very edge of the last stitch and cut.
Super quick and easy and a great way to display my great-grandchildren. I have 4 and a 5th on the way.
