Motiff 1: Medallion

Giving designing a try.. Here's one original design that I've come up with in the past year. Couldn't decide on a cute name, though. Click on the pattern for the chart.



Tatted in the round, with either one shuttle or needle and a ball. Do not cut thread between rounds

Abbreviations:
R Ring
C Chain
Cl Close
- Picot
+ Join
RW Reverse Work
DNR Do Not Reverse

Round One:
R 5-3-3-5. Cl. RW
C 3-3-3-3 RW.
*R 5+3-3-5. Cl. RW
C 3-3-3-3. RW
*Repeat six times, then
R 5+3-3+5. Cl. RW
C 3-3-3-3, Joining at base of 1st chain.

Round Two:
C 5-5-5. RW
R 3-3+3-3, joining to 2nd P of first chain. Cl. DNR
R 3-3-3-3. Cl. RW.
C 5-5-5, joining between chains of center medalion.
*C 5+5-5. RW
R 3-3+3-3. Cl. DNR
R 3-3-3-3. Cl. RW
C 5-5-5, join between chains.
* Repeat six times, then

Any feedback is appreciated! ^^
