Tatting is the old-fashioned method of forming small knots into shapes and edgings. In crochet or knitting, we use loops to form stitches. In tatting, we are tying knots to create our stitches. Tatting looks very delicate, but because it is made of knots, it is actually quite strong. It is easy to learn. There is only one knot to master, the “double stitch.” You can make lovely doilies or beautiful edgings for collars, hankies, pillowcases, and a variety of other objects. Tatting is also a very handy craft to take with you nearly anywhere, as it does not take up much space and requires few supplies.
There are two methods for tatting — tatting using a shuttle, or tatting using tatting needles. Either method works, and you may choose which method you prefer.
