Gina Brummet Tatted False Plait

Yesterday was a red banner day for me.

I finished several long term projects around the house, to include a tatting project. I received word that the tatting classes I am teaching at a Jo-ann store are being expanded. I mastered a pattern I’m excited to use in class, adapt to other uses, and generally am thrilled about. [drum roll please] Gina Brummet’s Tatted False Plait http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2004/plaits/gbplaits.html .

I even dreamed up how to end the plait while securing the ends well. I used the SSSR (single shuttle split ring) technique. I first learned this while tatting Anne’s Ringtrim http://www.nuperelle.net/drager/monstre/RingtrimEng.pdf . Now that I’ve done the pattern once, I’m sure the next plait will be neater and a better example of creative tatting!
