Tatting Editha

I actually do tat. Really, I do.

One of my physicians is retiring and I wanted to thank him for his help. So I decided to tat him a nice bookmark

Tatted in Altin Basik 50

This is Editha, a pattern I found from Christiane Eichler's site. I think he'll like it!

Christiane has this tatted in two rounds. I rewrote it to tat in one round.

Here is my rewritten version of her Editha pattern. Take a look at her pattern for the diagram:

2 shuttles wound CTM

Center ring 7-7-7-7-7-7

Row 2 (two shuttles): 

R1 (SR) 2-2-2/2-2-2.

*Ch1 5.

R2 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2  (11 picots)

Ch2 4-4-4-4

R3 2-2-2 + 2nd p of R2 2-2-2

Ch3 4-4-4

 SS R4 4-4 SS

Ch4 4-4-4

R5 2-2-2 + 4th p of R2 2-2-2

Ch5 4-4-4-4 +6th p of R2

Ch6 5

SS R6 6+3rd p of Ch4 4-6 SS


R7 2-2-2 +next p of center R 2-2-2


Repeat 5 more times from * to *. On 5th repeat, tat Ch6 and lock join to R1. Then tat R6, joining to Ch5 of prior round and Ch2 of 1st round. Stop at **



  1. A wonderful gift. Thanks for the link and revised version.
