Girl's Own Book 1858 Edging
Recent study of "The Girl's Own Book" 1858 edition by (Lydia) Maria Child brought to my attention an illustration of 4 variations of a line of half-closed rings. Half-closed rings were often used in vintage patterns but seen less seldom today.
Girl's Own Book 1858 Pattern
"The Girl's Own Book" in 1833 had no tatting. But by the time that the 1858 edition was issued, tatting had its own section. The tatting section is on pages 330 through 348. The instructions are quite general but accurate as are the illustrations. Among the patterns is this curious piece of lace.
Grandmother's Heirloom Handiwork
Grandmother's Heirloom Handiwork, this booklet has no date on it but has the feel and appearance of needlework books of the late '70's and early '80's such as "Stitch'n'Sew" or "Popular Needlework."
Half-Closed Tatted Ring
he mystery of the half-closed ring lies in the fact that we use it so seldom these days. It can be the foundation for many patterns, as shown by many public domain vintage patterns from the "DMC Book of Tatting" by Thérèse de Dillmont.

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.

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.)
