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. 7 Methods of Tatting
A brief overview of several methods of tatting: finger tatting, shuttle, needle, needle used as if it were a shuttle, cro-tating, Japanese hook tatting.
3. Tradition of Free Tatting Patterns
It was a common practice among the early manufacturers of thread, flax, cotton wool or silk to also publish patterns which called for the use of their products.
4. Bicolor Needle Tatted Rings
Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
5. Tatted Daisy by Mrs. Odum
Tatted Daisy by Mrs. W. M. Odum. New models by Amrutha N.
6. Lovely Tatting Lace - Korean
"Lovely Tatting Lace" is a Korean language tatting instructions and patterns book. It is a paperback with 192 pages. There is full color on every page, even the diagrams. Beautiful work and easy to understands diagrams
7. Rainbow Bright Earrings by Renee Campbell
Sweet and easy earrings for all occassions by Renee Campbell
8. 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.)
9. Mlle Riego 4 Shuttle Tatting
In this pattern from the Pearl Tatting Book is a chain pattern insertion which I mistook at first for an example of split ring tatting. It is not. Instead, Mlle Riego uses four tatting shuttles to tat the alternating sides in one pass.
10. 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
