Pull up 6 beads (pull up beads onto ring thread leaving behind hand to pull up as needed) R4-3 bbb (3 beads, pull up snuggly to form triad) 3-3-3-3 bbb 3-4. Leave ¼” thread, RW
R9+ (to next p of center ring) 9. Leave ¼” thread Work rings up and down for 9 up & down rings, 10th up ring

R2-2 bbb 2-2-2-2-2-2. RW Ch 3-3-3-3-3-3+ (to 4th p of ring) RW continue around for 10 rings and chains, joining end into base of 1st ring. Leave 15” thread for lacing. Run a bead of glue down to center p of chain, slip knot into that picot. Let dry. Lace top and bottom using a tiny crochet hook to pull thread thru bead.
In the sample, I used a frosted small glass ornament filled with pale pink paint, then drained out and let dry for a few days.

  • A beautiful beaded ball ornament! I love the pink, as I am partial to the pastel "Victorian" palette, as well as to the darker burgandy and green shades! ! You are so generous to share your pattern! Nice to see you posting again! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  • Beautiful Christmas ball. Have copied the pattern and put it with the pattern book that I ordered from you last year. Have not done a whole lot of tatting this past year, but some. Hope you have a good holiday season. Robert, your tatting angle from last year.

  • Hi Robert. I get out my angel book every once in a while.l I hope you can get to this pattern. It's really fun. The boring part is loading all those beads but I think the finished pattern is well worth the effort. I use the floss leaders to load that many beads.
