About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Wee Dragonfly

Here's a pattern for my own "Wee Dragonfly."

Split ring 6/6.
Split 6/6.
Tie ends and put a dab of "Fray Check" on the knot. Cut. Use the ends of the top thread for an antenna.

  1. I would like to suggest with temerity that you could start this pattern from the bottom and work upwards. The first split ring (or it could be a ring) can cover both ends (each end in it's own half) and then you finish with the head. That way the 'ends' will become the antenna - voila!!! I've used that trick many, many times as in this pattern!
