                                           Front Chains 12  rw (do not cut when done)










First Round for Princess Ice Drop: (12 beads on chain thread)
Chains 6-2  rw

Chains 3 ( bead ) 2-1  rw
Rings 3 j(to same picot as the last join) 3  rw

Rings 2b 2b 2b 2 j to left picot in center of "petal" shapes, 2b2 j to right picot in center of "petal" shapes.
Chains 5 (3 beads) 5-5 (3 beads) 5 j(to left picot on top of "crown" of "petal" shapes), j(to right picot on top of "crown" of "petal" shapes), (3 beads over top of those joins), 5 (3 beads) 5-5 (3 beads) 5.
Cut, tie, hide ends.


   










For Princess Ice Drop Suncatcher-I used a bangle bracelet almost 3 inches across.
I had plenty of thread on my shuttle yet, so I unwound about 2 feet and used a crochet hook to pull the thread through the picots on the outer chains and then wrapped the thread once around the bracelet, and then pulled it through the next picot until I had them all "laced".  Then I snugged up the thread and then tied the tails and then tatted a zig-zag chain 3 first half stitch, then 3 second half stitch until I got it as long as I wanted it, and then I tatted a ring with the shuttle thread 15 stitches and hid the end.
