Hi All,
I have just finished the fourth ring, and the instructions want me to make a shuttle join into the "next bare thread space." I guess that that means to shuttle join between rings one and two, but I have no idea how to make the join so that the following rings continue around the outside of the existing rings. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I don't recognize that pattern name. Can you tell us where it came from so that we can take a look, too?

I found the pattern here: http://www.palmettotatters.org/patterns/JessicaRose-SharrenSM.pdf

I haven't tried this pattern yet, but I would make the same guess as rsmre. The petals are supposed to coil round the centre, right?

Well, that just goes to show you. I actually have a varigated pink version about half done. Maybe that's why I stopped. I had a long string of petals and was trying to figure out how i would make them curl around. Its on one of their CD's. Clearly I failed to note the pattern name. I was wondering if a supplementary thread that I could use to sew them into position would work.

There's a rose pattern somewhere on Georgia Seitz's site where you're supposed to tat a string of asymmetrical rose petals, then wind them round. I haven't tried this one, either! Maybe you could take a look and see how that rose is secured?

Hi Judy,
I wanted to make the version of the rose that is on the first page. The second page has directions for an alternative method of making the rose. Both directions state to leave tails at both the begining and the end. For the second method, one tail is used to sew the "petals" together. Then both tails are encapsulated to make the stem.

Hmmmmmmmm, I don't recall how it worked, it just did. I had trouble with the first one but managed to figure it out. It has been awhile and I do need to make some more.
PS: I encapsulted the ends in a josephine chain and added a leaf on each after the first one.

Hi All,
I may have found a clue. Here is a link for Yarnplayer's Eternal Rose Cross pattern: http://www.keepandshare.com/doc/1059989/eternal-rose-cross-pdf-february-6-2009-2-35-pm-836k?da=y. I assumed that the larger petals of the Jessica's Rose went around the outside of the smaller petals, but Yarnplayer's pattern has the larger petals in the center. I will try later to see if I can make it work.

Hello MercyPres,
I have seen this video, but it is for The Tea Rose pattern by Ruth Perry. The one that I need help with is The Jessica Rose.
Many thanks,
Rosemarie

It is a cute little rose, but I couldn't see the picture very well. So I made one. Took 4 tries cause I was just not with it. But eventually, I came to see that the design is a spiral.

Work 2 rings, which will be side by side with a bare thread between them.
Make another bare thread space and work the 3rd ring. The third ring joins to the space between the first and second rings. The fourth ring joins to the space between the second and third rings.

Think of a strip of paper and wind it into a tube. The front of the paper faces the back of the previous spiral layer. In the same way, we are making a ring that faces forward and then joins to the appropriate place from the back.

Here is a picture of my attempt. I think it's clearer to see what is happening.

Hello PattyD,
I didn't think of it as being a spiral. I got discouraged with it, but I'm going to give it another try.
Many thanks,
Rosemarie
