This is my small start on row nine of the Clover doily by Eileen Stafford. It was many years after I learned to crochet that I learned to tat. It always frustrated me that you couldn't climb up to that next row when tatting. This slowed my progress since I hated to cut and tie, then turn around and hide all those ends neatly. When I heard that it was possible to climb up in tatting by using a split ring or split chain I was intrigued. A solution was in sight.
