This is the second book in this series which I have acquired from Korea. It is a petite 6"x 8" or 15 x 20mm booklet and paperbound. It has but 20 pages. But those 20 pages feature colorful and unusual tatted lace designs. My favorite is a tatted hand filled with tatting that is call "Hamsa," an ancient design. The book is printed in Korean with snippets of tips in English to help out.

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. And every pattern in this new book is fully explained in large multicolored diagrams.

I first met these three designers through their 2015 book. I do not know the publisher and suspect is it privately published. The group 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 also divided into these four sections:

1. Henna's WorkStation

2. World of the Witch

3. My Little Room

4. Joint projects featured on the back cover.

This page was provided to give info about the designers and their work.

There are four brightly colored doilies as well as the Hamsa hand and a wisteria vine pattern as a bracelet, earrings and an edging. Very versatile.

The little patterns in the back "joint" section suggest that at least one of the tatters has children or grandkids. There is a bright red tatted crab, a pair of bare feet in sandy brown. Cool beaded flip-flops and a tatted bikini set. Wow.
