Split ring Christmas Ball Motif

All the tatting in this piece is 3 DS between picots. Two shuttles wound CTM. The center ring has 6 picots. The ends where the ring closes make 7 rings in the next row, each with 4 picots & the ends where the rings close make 5. The 3rd row is the same as the 2nd. The 4th row joins to 2 rings from the prev row and the rings have 6 picots, seven counting where the rings close. The outside row is rings & chains & join to two rings from the prev row. The rings are 4 picots & the chains have 3. This would make a pretty doily center and when the tatting is tight it lays nice and flat. Enjoy!
