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.
Susan Lowman answered:
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
