Check out my website at snapdragonlace.com where I'm blogging my progress as I work through the Priscilla Tatting Books from the early 1900s. I am updating the patterns using modern notation and finding more modern uses for the projects.
My grandmother tatted and as a kid I always wanted to learn how to do it, but was too young to get the hang of it. In college a friend and I spent a summer figuring out the basics from books and I've been addicted ever since!
Now days I travel a lot and I take my tatting with me everywhere. It's a great conversation starter. It doesn't matter where I am, when I pull out the shuttles people always ask what I'm doing.
We don't even have to speak the same language. Ive shown tatting to North African men in Italy and Armenian women in Los Angeles. I love sharing tatting with others!
This listing is for the pattern to my scalloped fingerless gloves. The gloves are based on an antique edging pattern. The pattern and instructions for making the gloves are written out. No diagrams.
These gloves can be made from either size 10 or size 20 thread. (In the pictures above, the gloves are made with size 20 thread.) This project uses basic rings and chains as well as a "non-double-stitch" chain such as a lock-chain or Josephine chain. These chains are no more difficult than a basic chain. I have a free downloadable handout available on Craftsy with instructions on a few of these chains (it also shows you how to use these stitches to create quick and easy "thong" bookmarks). You can find the instructions here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/other/4-non-double-stitch-chains--/34242?fresh=true
You may not copy or distribute these patterns. However, you are free to show or give away any anything made from these patterns. You may sell items made using my patterns, but must give credit to me as the designer and may not sell them online. If you teach tatting and would like to include any of my patterns in your class, please contact me first.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me at jessica [!at] snapdragonlace.com. I blog about my tatting projects and patterns at snapdragonlace.com.
