New Tatting Works 2015 Ring & Picot

I have acquired a new book from Korea. It is a petite 6"x 8" or 15 x 20mm booklet and paperbound. It has but 38 page. But those 38 pages are packed with colorful and intriguing tatted lace designs. It is printed in Korean, however, as we tatters have learned, the language in which the pattern is printed does not matter as long as there is a clear photograph and/or diagram. Best of all a diagram with the double stitch counts marked on them.

I do not know the author. I do not know the publisher. But let me share with you the information I have found on the covers. This may have originated at the Seoul International Handmade Fair of 2015. The Korean Tatters' Society Ring & Picot guild(?) was formed May 20, 2015. I paraphrase their mission statement: Organized May 2015, Ring & Picot seeks to promote the use of tatting and the art of tatted lace now and in the future.

The book is divided into four sections:

1. Henna's WorkStation

2. World of the Witch

3. My Little Room

4. Joint projects featured on the back cover.

The diagrams are all full color. The projects are all clearly photographed in bright beautiful color. (This book is so colorful that it makes you happy just to flip through the pages!) There are projects to make tatted jewelry, the familiar snowflakes, bookmarks and small mats. But the doilies! Oh, the doilies are fantastic. Some large enough to serve as a Grandma's Garden quilt block.

Colorful doilies for tea cups and figurines, doilies for side tables and doilies for table tops. And there is one doily called "Onion Flower." I have never seen this form of a doily. It is round and done in rows and rows of chains. But it has a great opening at one side, like the opening for tree skirt. This opening is lined with lots of multi-picot, tatted rings which resemble flowers! Terrific to show off a fancy vase or glass of fresh picked flowers.
