Lately I’ve been playing around with a design for a thumb chatelaine. Though I have had my short crochet hook on a tatted chain for almost as long as I’ve been tatting, I’ve never had it on a thumb chain before and thought I’d try out this new-to-me (though very old) method of keeping the tool handy—or thumby, in this case.

I’m just playing around with an idea at the moment, and it isn’t yet quite what I have in mind, but I thought I’d share anyway. I’ll post the pattern when I get it figured out.

Here’s what I have so far:

Thumb Chatelaine in Progress

My computer wasn’t cooperating yesterday so I wasn’t able to edit the next video lesson. I’ll try to work on it today and post it in the morning.

Happy tatting!
