For shuttle method with split rings, wind two shuttles continuously.

For shuttle method with no split rings, one shuttle and ball thread will work.

Needle tatting using either split ring or no split ring method will also work.

To follow the "no split ring" instructions, substitute the (NO Split Ring...) directions for those directly preceeding them.
