I just finished tatting up another of Jan Stawasz's designs from his book Tatting.
All my tatting is done in front side/back side tatting.
Instead of tatting it in size 10 thread I used Manuela size 20 thread in green. You do have to compensate by making more rings in the design. I made 21 rings before working on the 7 front designs. I could eliminate 3 rings on either side and still have a comfortable lenght. 3 rings w/beads = 1 inch or 15mm.
The 1st ring and last ring I did a SCMR so I could throw off a small ring for the clasp. I could eliminate SCMR and use a chain and ring instead. The necklace measures 19.25 inches or 49cm.
