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. Bicolor Needle Tatted Rings
Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
3. Using a needle as if it were a tatting shuttle
You can use a tatting needle or blunt tapestry needle as if it were a shuttle. The needle is attached to a long cut thread as normal, and then manipulated in the same manner as a shuttle.
4. Dagmar's Brisbane Earrings
Cloverleaf edging pattern from the June 13, 1908 Brisbane Courier pg.14 with a modern adaptation from Dagmar Pezzuto.
5. Il Lavoro Chiacchierino Series
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. 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.
8. Building a Tatting Library - Ineke Kuiperij
Ineke Kuiperij is a name to remember. A master tatter from the Netherlands, she has created a wonderful world of 3-dimensional tatting. Her tatted Carousel is a wonder to behold!
