April 2 - Crown of Thorns by Esther Paris

Last Spring I "discovered" how to tat a Crown of Thorns

I shared the pattern with a friend and she made dozens for a craftfair.

Make a ring with only first half of double stitch, and several picots.

Do it in jute or other rough-looking thread.

Voila - crown of thorns

Editor's note: This could be tatted in repeating split rings the right size to go around the head of a child in an Easter pageant and would be much softer than a real crown of thorns. Thanks Esther!
