Where to start the pattern?
I arrange the pattern or the diagram in what seems to be the most efficient place to start and the direction that is the easiest to work. And go from there. You do not have to start where the directions say.
Heart, Heart's Desire by Susan Fuller
"Heart's Desire" pattern from Susan Fuller's "A Potpourri of Tatting Patterns"
Mardi Gras Mask Tatted Jabot
Just imagine this jabot from Sophie La Croix's "Old and New Designs in Tatting, Book 11" in the traditional Mardi Gras colors, purple which represents justice, green which represents faith, and gold which represents power.
Heart, Jan Stawasz
Jan Stawasz shares his heart pattern from his new book, "Tatted Treasures." Experienced tatters will recognize that this is his homage to the late master tatter, Mary Konior. (See his acknowledgement on the diagram.)
Heart Celtic Birgit PHelps
This unusual heart is a workout in Celtic tatting and split rings. Birgit Phelps tatted with two colors. The use of the dark color on the outside really framed the figure. When adding the center part, she recommends finger tatting the last few elements.
Tatted Treasures by Jan Stawasz
Jan Stawasz's second book is finally released. This sequel to his "Tatting Theory and Patterns" was certainly worth the wait. It is a wonderful example of traditional style tatting.
Hearts, Split ring by Georgia Seitz
Here is a heart pattern to practice both the split ring, multiple joins into one picot and picots all the same size. It is the logo from my personal teaching website, www.georgiaseitz.com.
Singapore Tatting Book
A new tatting book from Singapore, "Fun with Tatted Motifs." Irene Yeow says that she is a writer and freelance editor of educational books. She learned tatting from her co-author, Lilian Cheong, about 7 years ago.
Top Ten Tatting Books
A list of books voted the top ten in tatting books. Please use this list to look for new tatting designers whose work you may have missed as well as studying the classic tatting books.
Japanese Needle Tatting
You will need patience to master this needle tatting technique. Unlike shuttle tatting and traditional needle tatting, the tool does not hold a supply of thread with which to work. Instead, Japanese needle tatting functions more like crochet in that it draws continually from the ball of thread.
