February 19 - Riet's Daisy Picot Hearts Bookmark
Is all the same as the pattern posted yesterday, except this; In the first part you tat after the last ring a chain 5 – 5 to go to the point of the heart. Cut the threads , but take care that you leave ends long enough for the tail.
The second part ends after the last big ring.
Then you start the tail
After this 2 ds you make: Sh1 2 dds and Sh2 2ds
Repeat this till you have the length you need make a overhand knot in the 4 ends and cut.
The daisy picot technique goes like this:
Take 2 shuttles with different colors make an overhand knot in the ends. Take the knot in the pinch, Start ring with Shuttle 1 and shuttle 2 is laying over your left hand
After 1 ds. You start making the daisy picot like this
Let Sh 1 hanging down, take Sh 2 and make a ds on the ring thread, but don’t do the flip, so don’t take off the tension. We call this stitch a daisy ds or short a dds.
