Pattern for the beaded flower

As I told before... beads phase im my tatting.
I just made this flower and someone wanted the pattern. It is not a big deal, it is not difficult at all.
Starting element is the most common 6 petal flower done with 1 shuttle. There are some beads on it. The second round just goes around the flower and the beads. This is the part wich gives a nice shape.
I guess someone else wiser and smarter tham me has to have found this idea before, but I never saw it. If it is the case, I apologize and I will be grateful if someone can point me the author, if there is one.

The pattern is done for a 12 Anchor Freccia  thread (like the 60 DMC, if I remember it correctly).

What you need: 30 seed beads.

Wind your shuttle and put the 30 seed beads on the thread.

Take 4 seed beads and start the ring. 8ds - 8ds - 3beads from the loop and 1 from the shuttle 8 close. The fourth bead from the loop will remain at the base of the ring.
Repeat 5 times, making the joins to form the flower.
Cut thread.
Easy.

Second round: all chains. (marked red)
Begin from the join picotsof the flower.
Chain 12ds, make lock join to the thread between the 2 seed beads.
Chain 4 ds - 4ds lock join after the bead on top.
Chain 12 ds lock join at the picot from the flower.
Repeat until the round is complete.



What I noticed while playing with this pattern.
For the outer round, you shoud add not more than 4 ds at the amount of ds used as a base for the flower. My case here: 8 for the flower, 12 for the outer chain. Less ds do not bring a nice shape, more ds will make a nasty join with overlaping chains.
When you make the lock joins for the outer round, you should consider passing the thread through the picot and not bellow the picot from the flower. Result: a smoother transition. When I made the join fom the lower part of the picot, I had a knottier join and a longer part of the thread was visible. Not nice.
The nastiest part: the join where the flower was closed... Patience needed.
If you use beads bigger than 1mm -1,5 mm, you should replace the 4 - 4 sequence with something fitting to your material.

  19. I found a tutorial on you tube for this flower when I just started (needle) tatting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvdmA50algg
    and made one in blue. Mine looks a little messy, but since it was my first try I don't mind the weird looking parts :)

    1. Morning Diana, your tatting will get better with every piece you work, you will see. As a rule, just keep the ds between the thumb and the index until you feel it is closed. And make sure that the size of the needle fits to the therad you use (one of the secrets of needle tatting).
      For the flower: a bit of attention with the joins so the transition can be smooth. Happy tatting.

  20. Hi Corina, I love making these beaded flowers!!! I have made several and some are mini beaded starflowers because I had run short on thread and only tatted 5 rings, and all the stitch counts are cut in half.
    I wanted to make a note to you that I believe there is one correction needed in your pattern(please forgive me if I am wrong).
    Where you say: Take 4 seed beads and start the ring. 8ds - 8ds - 3beads from the loop and 1 from the shuttle 8 close.>>> I believe it should say 8ds - 8ds close at the end. I think there is a picot and 8 missing in your pattern in writing.
    Just in case someone else tats from the written pattern like I did. Somehow I missed your diagram which would have been more clear.
    Also, I have been using size 40 threads and in tatting your full pattern I find that using 8ds. on the outer large chains makes my flowers look more like your picture, than when I used 12 ds(which makes it pretty too, but doesn't look like your picture.
    I hope you are having a great day!!!
