Tatted Necklace

Tatted this a couple of days ago, but was hoping to get the chain to finish it before showing it.  Well...a snowstorm prevented going out and purchasing the chain, so...here is what I have.  :)
This is Yarnplayer's Ripple necklace:link here- 
It's a very easy pattern, and I was able to complete it even with an alteration in about 2- 2 1/2 hours.  :)
It's tatted in size 10 Cheryl's HDT.  I made a slight alteration to be able to add the stone at the bottom.  It's from Fox from the give-away package I received.  :)
The thread colors and the stone went so well together that I just had to find something to make with them.

Hi, Sue,
We in Toronto have the big snowstorm this morning, so I am sitting warm and cozy reading the blogs. When I saw yours, I thought you had taken a pic of a silver chain! Now I see what it is... Very pretty! Well done.
Fox : )

Thanks Fox!! We had the storm yesterday and ended up with a lot of snow, rain, and everything else in the mix. It was really, really nasty and I had a long 2 hour drive to get my daughter and come back home in all that mess.
I would scan that necklace, but, the stone would reflect the light bad(I took the picture without the flash for that reason). But the colors in the thread and the stone compliment each other very well in real life. :)

So beautiful!! I thought a chain too even though we'd already talked and you said it wasn't. A close look you're right they complaintment eachother nicely. I must say I never thought my thread could look that good. Can't wait to see it!! I'm going to have to try this one!!

I just relized that I already had this pattern saved, guess now it's time to get busy with it.

Glad you like it Cheryl!! Your thread went so perfectly with the stone that I had to use them together and that pattern seemed to go well. I think you can do this pattern, but...it's a bit "fiddly" as others say working the first part and then at then ending of joining the second part. Otherwise I think you could do it! :)

I was completely fooled by this photo, and I didn't read the text closely the first time! I too thought that was a real chain and wondered where the tatting was, although the stitches were somewhat visible. Then when I saw Marilees's pattern it became clear what chain you went out to buy LOL! I have to admit I'm not familiar with Cheryl's HDT! Where have I been?! This was very clever of you to think of this!

Thank you Kathy!! :)
I am surprise by how many are thinking it's a chain-even the one who dyed the thread!! :)

That is so very pretty! If you're able to come to Tollway Tatters, will you bring it with you? I'd love to see it in person!

We still have no snow. :-(

Looks great! My version of this pattern feels very light, I think your stone would be a good way to weight it a bit. It does look like a chain!

Thanks Diane!! I will bring it if I can make it to Tollway Tatters(when is the next one???).
We have plenty of snow and I am more than willing to share at this point!! Thursday was a total mess and I am more than thankful for the sunshine!!! :)

God's Kid said...

Thank you Jane and Margaret!! :)
The stone does weigh it down Jane. :)

Very very pretty. I love the addition of the stone at the bottom. Would love to see it on a model and how it lays against the skin. :)
