Fan-tastic Project by Linda Davies

Materials

 
Fan blank; the fan sticks measure 4½ inches overall and 2½ inches where the tatting fits. I purchased this vintage fan from an on-line auction for just a couple of pounds. I removed the old paper fan and washed the plastic part in warm soapy water. It came up beautifully! Alternatively,
you can purchase a new fan blank, or make your own using craft stick, both obtainable from good craft stores.
Fine thread; I used vintage DMC size 70, shuttle, paperclip, PVA craft glue.

Repeat from ‡ until all the fingers are filled in and joined, and then down the last side of the first finger, working Rings 1 through 9 and Chains 1 through 8, but in reverse order.
 
Without cutting the thread work the decorative chain along the bottom as follows:
2 – 2 – 2 – 2, lj to space created by first 3ds of Ch20 of first finger
2 – 2 – 2 – 2, lj to space created by second 3ds of same chain
2 – 2 – 2 – 2, lj to same join of Chains 1 and 19 between two fingers
 

 
Continue all the way along the bottom edge joining last chain to tiny space
at starting point. Cut and tie ends and dab knot with glue.
 
To make up:
1. Steam press tatting.
2. Put a good film of glue on the underside where the fill-in row joins together.
3. Place the tatting onto the fan spines and press each one firmly. Wait until the glue
has set enough before attaching the ends.
4. Glue each end of the tatting to the end spines, one facing up and one facing down.
5. Let the glue dry completely before folding.
6. Fold the fan carefully, making sure the tatting folds in the right direction. Leave in the folded position for at least 24 hours. The longer you can leave it the better it is as this encourages the tatting to fold easily through “memory” when closed.

Materials:
 
Mercerised crochet cotton size 20 in two colours of your choice, i.e. light pink and dark
pink, lilac and purple, orange and yellow.
30 gauge white paper cover wire
20 gauge green paper covered wire
Lily stamens.
Green florists tape
Flexible craft glue
 
The wires,stamens and tape are readily available from sugarcraft shops.
 
Method:   Petal
 
All rings have 3ds between picots.
Wind shuttle with one colour for rings and use a ball of the other colour for chains.
Following the chart start with a clover leaf of:-

Stages showing the development of the lily petal. The size of the chains with the size of the rings causes the petal to curve naturally. A little spot of glue on each join of the chains is enough to firmly secure the wire.
 

 
Stamens are taped to the thicker green wire.
 

 
To Make Up:
1. Make 6 tatted petals.
2. Cut 1, 20 gauge green wire 15cm long and using green florists tape, tape 4 lily stamens to
one end.
3. Cut 6, 30 gauge white wires 10cm long.
4. Glue one white wire to the back of each petal and leave to dry. When dry curve into a natural
shape.
5. Group 3 wired petals around the stamens (where the stamens join the wire) and tape
securely.
6. Group the other 3 petals around the first 3 petals (between them) so that all petals can be seen.
 
Completed flower – note the overlapping petals to produce a natural shape.

Second set of petals:
Make in the same way as the first set but make every ring starting and finishing with 3ds. (i.e. 3ds,
5p sep by 2ds, 3ds, cl)

 

To make up:
1. Cut 6, 33 gauge wires, each 6cm long.
2. Place a wire through the centre hole, bend and glue to the inside of a petal (up the centre of the
petal) putting a dab of glue at each join of the chains.
3. Repeat step 2 for each petal on both sets of petals.
4. Place a spot of glue on the inside of the larger petal set in the centre.
5. Sit the smaller set of petals inside the larger ones by pushing the 3 central wires through the central hole so that the two sets of petals are glued together. There are now six wires extending from the centre of the base of the flower.
6. Cut 1, 24 gauge wire 15cm long and tape 6 yellow stamens to one end with one stamen extending beyond the other.
7. Thread the long wire and stamens through the centre of the flower and fix into position with glue.
8. Cover all wires with green tape from the base of the flower.
9. Curve the petals into the shape of a tulip.

Ch2 As Ch1
Rep to make 6 rings and 6 chains. Join R6 to R1 at 3rd p and make 6th chain a split chain as follows:
Ch 6   Sh2 9
SCh    Sh1 9
SR      Sh     2 2-2-2/2-2-2. DNRW
 

Round 2:
Ch1    Sh2 5, b, 5, RW
R1      Sh1 2—2—2, j bet 2 chs on round 1, 2—2—2, cl, RW
Ch2   Sh2 5. b. 5. j to centre picot of next R on round 1, DNRW
R2     Sh2 Slide 1 bead into the ring around your fingers and tat
                  2—2—2—2, slide the bead into place, 2—2—2—2, cl, DNRW
Rep from Ch1 all round making the last ring a split ring as follows;
R12    Sh2 Slide 1 bead into the ring around your fingers and tat
2—2—2—2, slide the bead into place, 2
Sh1 2—2—2, cl, DNRW

 

Round 3:
All chains in this round are lock chains which are made by making each double stitch thus; first half of the double stitch flipped in the normal way and the second half of the double stitch not flipped. You may notice that your thread twists a lot doing this type of chain and I recommend you let your shuttle drop to untwist regularly.
Ch1    10 lock stitches (ls), j between next two chains on round 2,
           10 ls, j to 2nd p of next R on round 2, DNRW
Ch2    5 ls, 1 normal ds, 5 ls, j to next free p of same R on round 2.
Rep all round , j to starting point of the round. Tie and trim ends close to knot, dab knot with glue.

 

Optional:
Make the last chain on round 3 (Ch12) 5 ls, ds p ds, 5 ls.
This will provide a little loop to enable you to hang your star snowflake up.
