Lock Chain Bookmark

What is a lock chain? Normally you can move the stitches in a chain. In a lock chain you cannot.


Thread in the size you prefer, in 2 colours. I used Oren Bayan # 50.
2 shuttles and of course all you need to tat.

Jewelry with Lock Chains

(Late Night Friday)


Thread in size 80 in two colours of your choice.
Beads that fit on the thread and goes with the colour of the threads. It depends on where you will put the beads. If you want beads on all the picots then you need for the earrings 70 beads on the blue thread Sh2 and 24 beads on the white thread Sh1.

For the hanger you need 41 beads on Sh2 and 18 beads on Sh1. Riet prefers to put more beads on each shuttle because you can miscount.If you do not want the beads, you just tat a picot in place of the beads.

On Time: As a courtesy to your teacher and your classmates, please arrive ON TIME to your scheduled classes. If you finish your project early, or would like additional time to visit, shop, or see the silent auction items, you may leave any class early.
