What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be comfortable crocheting with size 10 crochet thread and a size 7/1.65mm steel hook before starting this project. Gather all of your buttons and arrange them first.

Well done! Really captures the look of tatting.

Thank you, Keeral. I do tatting, as well as crochet, so I'm very familiar with the stitches in both needle arts. This necklace, bracelet and earrings are much quicker to make in crochet than in tatting, so I prefer the crocheted version.

Hi I would like to know if you do your tatting with a shuttle or needle's as I can only do it with a needle's as I have got very small hands and I have had about 6 day's .But now I have got the needle's I am getting better and better And I am loving how it comes out like lace.Gillian Zapparoni.

Gillian, Actually, this necklace is "crocheted" to look like tatting (that's why I call it "faux tatted"). It is not tatted. However, I tat, as well as crochet and knit. I do shuttle tatting because I prefer how tight and even my stitches are when made with a tatting shuttle. Tatting shuttles come in many sizes, so I'm sure you could find one small enough for your small hands. I taught a shuttle tatting class at the Knit & Crochet Show in Manchester, NH this past July. It's really not as hard as you might think! Craftsy has an excellent Shuttle Tatting class taught by Marilee Rockley. I've taken that class to improve my shuttle tatting skills and I highly recommend it to others! Susan Lowman
