TIAS Practice Pieces for Day 5

For Day 5 - our pattern had options.   Could use a Lock Join (which I know how to do) -- or a Catherine Wheel Join (which I struggle with every time).

Pulled out a practice piece (Lizbeth size 20, Color 122) and tatted the pattern using a Lock Join.   Will get out my other practice piece and try to figure out the Catherine Wheel Join.   Supposed to create a smoother outline on the chain.

I'm also thinking my piece should not have scallops!  Probably should be smooth chain.   Can figure it out with another practice try.

TIAS (Tat It and See)

hosted by Jane Eborall.

Please visit her blogs to participate and/or follow along.  Try to guess what we are tatting.  I thought it was a caterpillar, or butterfly, or fish.   Now, not really certain!   As the days continue, and Jane provides additional pattern, will see if I'm even close to a good guess.

Like everyone else, I have to look up Catherine wheel joins every time. They do give a smoother outline, though that’s probably not drastic!
