This book contains not only 116 beautiful and useful patterns, but also detailed and simple directions telling you what materials to use, how to work each pattern and illustrations of the finished pieces. It will start you working on projects you never thought of tatting before, and it will give you many new ideas for pieces of your own.
The book starts with a brief explanation of stitches and a short, general section on materials. The patterns begin with simple projects – edging, beading, insertions, trimming, borders – and then go on to more complicated flower, butterfly, alphabet and geometric designs for collars, yokes, doilies, handbags, jabots, baskets, pillowcases, aprons, scarves, necklaces, lamp shades, baby bonnets, a serving tray cloth, a belt buckle, a table scarf and many more.
