Publisher Comments:

Tatting as we know it evolved from knotting techniques dating back thousands of years. The Pilgrims brought the craft to America and today this beautiful and delicate form of lacework is more popular than ever.

This guide to tatting by a veteran needlecrafter provides explicit, clearly written instructions and over 100 illustrations for making 12 different tatted hearts. To create these lovely patterns, the author has developed two new techniques—"directional tatting," a short-cut tactic involving reverse stitches, and "stacking," a method that gives tatting a three-dimensional look. Also incorporated in the patterns is a variation on the split ring technique perfected in the 1920s by the noted designer Anne Orr. Many of the designs are simple enough for a beginner, while others will catch the interest of even the most experienced of tatters.

Perfect as tabletop accents or as framed works of art, each of these completed, lovely heart-shaped designs is shown in a separate photograph. And as an extra bonus, there's a photo of a mobile utilizing all the patterns.

Original Dover (1994) compilation of patterns originally appearing in various newsletters self-published by the author.

Synopsis:

Even beginners can make 12 different beautiful tatted hearts, utilizing "directional tatting" and the split ring technique. Separate photos of each heart as well as a mobile utilizing all the hearts. 111 illustrations.

I think this book is a must-have for anyone who tats. It's got clearly written instructions, and covers some methods of a more simple manner to making stitches versus trying to reverse work, etc as well as how to stack components of a design so you can have a 3D object instead of flat 2D. Once you complete a few of these patterns, you will have the confidence to take on just about any tatting pattern.

Lastly, the patterns are gorgeous.
