January 7 - Snowflake variation

Shuttle and ball (CTM)
Begin another row around the previous snowflake at the base, or bottom of any one of the rings. The shuttle thread goes over the threads at the base of the ring, and the ball thread goes under them. This row of chains is a mirror image of the chains between the rings.

Chain ( 6 - 6 ) around the next ring [you may need to increase the stitch count to (7 - 7) to make it look right if your tatting is very tight.
repeat around the snowflake as shown
Tie the ends at the base of the first ring. Cut, Tie, and Hide the ends.
