What are you most proud of? Somehow the pinks in the variegated thread put themselves on the outside of the design, the greens in the middle. This was just a happy accident, totally unplanned :-)

Thanks, you could do it, too! All the skills needed to tat this and other tatting patterns are taught in the Shuttle Tatting class on Craftsy, starting with the very basics.

This is amazing and beautiful. What a great art form and craft. I love most of the projects that other people can't focus the finer details for. I'm excited to announce I'm going to be taking this online on Craftsy within the next week!

What is the difference in using a needle for Tatting? Is one more difficult than the other?

03/23/2016 Flag

The way that needle tatting differs from tatting with a shuttle, is the method of forming the double stitches. In needle tatting the stitches are formed by wrapping them onto a special needle, then sliding the needle through. It's similar to casting on in knitting. But in shuttle tatting, the double stitches are formed onto the thread, as knot tying. Shuttle tatting is more difficult to learn at first, but once you get "the flip" it's pretty easy after that.
