1. The Big Book of Tatting - Eeva Talts
Book Review: In English, the title is "The Big Book of Tatted Lace. In German, it is called "Das große Buch der Schiffchenspitze." And, "Suur Pitsiraamat" is the original Estonian title.
2. 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.
3. Tatting Plus Coronation Cord
Tatting has been combined with vintage coronation cord with excellent results.
4. Il Lavoro Chiacchierino Series
This long-running series of tatting books produced by Mani di Fata is a treasure trove of traditional tatting patterns.
5. Interlocking Tatted Rings
Instructions for interlocking tatted rings appeared in the Young Ladies Journal,1869. This method was revived and reprinted in Tatting Knots and Notes, Nov. 1992 by the late Doretha Albee.
6. Bicolor Needle Tatted Rings
Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
7. Tatting Plus Needleweaving
Tatting has been combined with needle weaving with stunning results.
8. Tatting Plus Hairpin Lace aka Maltese Crochet
Tatting has been combined with hairpin lace with surprising results. Hairpin Lace is also called Maltese Crochet. It uses a loom that was originally a U-shaped hairpin around which thread is wrapped and then brought together in the center using a crochet hook.
9. "Beads & Knots" Needle Tatted Jewelry
"Beads & Knots" Needle Tatted Jewelry. Nina Libin has prepared a new book especially for needle tatters. Some shuttle tatted beading techniques were not possible to reproduce as the diameter of the tatting needles would not accommodate all sizes of the delicate beads used in tatted beaded jewelry.
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.)
