The SCMR must always be started with a thread loop made with the core thread!
The SCMR is a section that can consist of many elements. To help you follow the written instructions all elements of the SCMR are within brackets [ ]. Every time the abbreviation SCMR[ appears in the instructions the loop is formed. When you reach the ]CL, the core thread is passed through the loop and the SCMR is pulled up into a ring.
|With shuttle 1 as knotting thread and shuttle 2
as core thread hold work in the usual position.
|Pull middle finger down catching the core thread.|
|Bring core thread back to the pinch forming the loop.|
|You are now ready to begin tatting the first element
of the SCMR.
