A form of handmade lace, tatting is a traditional skill with origins dating back centuries and spanning continents. Each stitch is composed of two half-hitch knots. The single thread is looped and knotted with the aid of a small shuttle -- a simple technique that produces amazingly intricate results.

This book shows how a simple piece of tatting can be developed into something striking and complex. The reader is guided through the process with easy-to-follow diagrams and descriptions. The 15 stunning designs, including many variants to experiment with, allow the tatting disciple to explore the craft further. Ideas for how the basic patterns can be developed are included, as well as suggestions such as creating very different looks by varying the thread used. Whatever your level of experience, Mastering Tatting offers the chance to create something satisfying and unique to cherish or give as a gift.
