Tatted Hexagons

I had all these bobbins filled with left over threads size 20. I had some 40's but did not look good so will stay with only size 20 Lizbeth. It is a simple 6 ring no chains and only needs 1 yard. (Note: to my Christmas Exchange tatter..I could use 1 yard of any color, size 20 for my giftie...hint, hint)  
The pattern was found in an old DMC tatting book. Some hexes I have thread for only one hexagon other hexes I had a few yards like on the purple row. I worked it where I could do a split ring into the next row.  Perhaps someday it might be a tablecloth or bedspread!!! 
It is a good project that can be picked up at any time and take along for TIIP (tat it in public). Another good way to see what Lizbeth threads look like.

Really pretty and a good way of using up small lengths of thread.

Thanks Jane, I have been looking for a while to tat something with bits of treads. This is an easy way to do it. (:

I like the way it is growing and now have about 8 bobbins and shuttles empty.

Lovely. Nice way to use those bits of thread left on bobbin. Could I ask what the stitch count is? Looks like 4-2-2-4?

Thanks God's Kid, Lizbeth makes lots of yummy colors!!
Thanks Phyllis, That is the pattern for the ring and you need 6 rings.

Nice way to use up threads and something that will grow in time. Should look lovely when you decide you have the size you need.
Thank you for the comment on my blog
