Simple tatted edge

Tatted edge

This is the simple tatted edge I saw in Needlework and associated collectables yesterday. This one is simply rings of ten double stitches, not pulled fully closed. Practice may make it a little more even.

Now others may know it - but I didn't, and I think it is beautifully simple as a scalloped edge. And a good way to used up the leftover thread on the shuttle.

It doesn't like being straight as much as it likes being curved - so here it is, wrapped around a button. Not that I have sewn it down yet, so there are ends everywhere.
