Here are the top ten articles for the Tatting Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Japanese Needle Tatting
You will need patience to master this needle tatting technique. Unlike shuttle tatting and traditional needle tatting, the tool does not hold a supply of thread with which to work. Instead, Japanese needle tatting functions more like crochet in that it draws continually from the ball of thread.
2. EJ Lavalle 1917 book, fig. 23
EJ Lavalle 1917 book, fig. 23 is a tatted circle inside a square with rounded corners. The negative space between the two elements is filled with 4 sets of 4 rings.
3. E.J. Lavalle 1917 book, fig. 30
This pattern from the 1917 book by E. J. Lavalle looked like an autumn leaf or so I thought. Then it began to look like a moth, no, a leaf from a tulip tree, no a fan. OK. I don't know what to call it. But give it a try.
4. Noorjahan's Rubies - Muskaan
Muskaan shares her pattern "Noorjahan's Rubies Ring" with us. Muskaan designed these earrings and ring pattern especially for the 2017 Palmetto Tat Days
5. Il Lavoro Chiacchierino Series
Here's an update on this long-running series of tatting books produced by Mani di Fata is a treasure trove of traditional tatting patterns.
6. Oval Shuttle motif
Norma Benporath (1900 - 1998) designed lovely tatting patterns which were published by SEMCO in the pre- and during the WWII years. This pattern caught my attention because of its oval shuttle-like shape. It is from the Home Beautiful Tatting Book #4
7. Anna G. Vecherskaya
Anna G. Vecherskaya's "FRIVOLITÉ, Practical course in making lace with shuttles" is an A4 paper booklet with 24 pages. Moscow ©1991. It is in the Russian language.
8. Alphabet L - Z Anna Valeire Book 3
The Tatted Alphabet by Anna Valeire Book 3 pg. 15. Tatted initials are handy for many projects. And added flower or decorative picots are just fine, too.
9. Bicolor Needle Tatted Rings
Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
10. 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.)
