I have rewritten the pattern for a beginner to use. There is no designers name but this person did not want to cut threads and made each medallion (3 different sets of rings) with one shuttle. She tatted the center ring leaving ½ inch of thread to tat an outer large ring. Turning the work a small ring is tatted and connected to the center ring.
For a Beginner it is easier to make the center ring, cut and tie, then add the outer rings. One could use split rings but then you have 2 shuttles to work with and more threads to tie in. She was very clever designing this medallion.
CENTER Ring A: 1 ds, 12p with 2 ds between, 1 ds close cut and tie all threads.
FIRST ROUND LARGE OUTER RING
Ring B: 4ds, 8 p with 2 ds, 4 ds, close leave no thread RW
FIRST ROUND SMALL INNER RING
Ring C: Medallion ONLY: 2 ds, p 3 ds Join to first P in the Center Ring 3 ds p 2ds cl RW
*****FAN ONLY: 2 ds, p 3 ds Join to the 4th P in the Center Ring 3 ds p 2ds cl RW
REPEAT REMAINING RINGS (Medallion makes a full circle connecting all the way)
**LARGE OUTER RING Ring B: 4ds, J to last p, 7 p with 2 ds, 4 ds, close leave no thread RW
SMALL INNER RING for Medallion - 2 ds, Join to small ring, 3 ds Join to 2nd P in the Center Ring
3ds p 2ds cl RW
***** FAN ONLY 2 ds, p 3 ds Join to the next P in the Center Ring 3 ds p 2ds cl RW *
The Fan has 6 large rings and 5 small rings. Tat a bird for the center and you have a Peacock!!
Bird: R: 10 p 1 p 10 CL RW (picots are clipped for feet)
R: 5 small p 1 Large p 1 small p 5 CL
Attach to the fan…
