Men in Tatting

Ben Fikkert is a gentleman tatter from the Netherlands. He first learned knitting as a youngster of 8 and then later he began to crochet. His mother taught him to tat and he has been now tatting since 1978. He is a traditional shuttle tatter, but has experimented with needle tatting a bit. Trained as an software engineer he continues designing and tatting. He has written three books on tatting (the first two are out of print) and his designs have appeared in Håndarbejdsbladet, Handwerken zonder Grenzen and Tatting with Friends (Book 5 of the Ribbonwinners series.)

Tatting Adventures


Sample of pattern and diagram style.


Ben Fikkert's third book, "Tatting Adventures" was published in 2005. It is a nostalgic trip into traditional tatting. Using full color photos and diagrams, he takes the tatter on a sentimental journey to recreate doilies and edgings which would have graced any grandmother's parlor. Using basic techniques and a few fancy stitches like Victorian sets and the mignonette tatting, Ben has created a froth of lacey designs which will keep tatters happy for a long time.
