Braccialetti by Alicja Kwartnik
Braccialetti con il Chiacchierino ad ago by Alicja Kwartnik.
As previously reviewed all of Alicja Kwartnik's needle tatting books are printed in Italian. Thankfully, her patterns are presented with full color detailed photos and numbered diagrams. Although intended as a needle tatting book, all the patterns may be tatted with the tatting shuttle as well.
The best feature of her books are the many tutorial photo illustrations. I highly recommend this book for a new needle tatter. The old-fashioned written out directions may be ignored and the tatter can accomplish all the work by studying the illustrations, photos and diagrams.
Sample of pattern, diagrams and tutorials, pg. 26.
This new book presents nine tatted bracelets treatments. All the bracelets are embellished with regular beads, pearls and fancy beads. The various bead placements are demonstrated for each pattern. Covering metal findings and interlocking rings are clearly explained along with a celtic style woven motif. The back of the book has five full pages of needle tatting techniques in illustrations.
Natale con il Chiacchierino ad Ago by Alicja Kwartnik features a tatted nativity scene.
"Chiacchierino ad Ago" (Needle Tatting), was published in 2010 by Casa Editrice Nuova S1 was also an A4 size paperbound book with 63 pages. The patterns are all of the simplest construction aimed at the new needle tatter. All the basic needle tatting movements are illustrated step by step. 15 patterns are diagrammed on page 16.
