9. Russian Tatting Books
A short list of both paperback and hardback book of tatting patterns in the Russian language. Lots of black and white illustrations but many full color plates, too! The patterns run from traditional collars and doilies to antique reproductions and evena bit of jewelry and floral work.

Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
