Tatting as we know it evolved from knotting techniques dating back thousands of years. The Pilgrims brought the craft to America and today this beautiful and delicate form of lacework is more popular than ever.

This guide to tatting by a veteran needlecrafter provides explicit, clearly written instructions and over 100 illustrations for making 12 different tatted hearts. To create these lovely patterns, the author has developed two new techniques - "directional tatting, " a short-cut tactic involving reverse stitches, and "stacking, " a method that gives tatting a three-dimensional look. Also incorporated in the patterns is a variation on the split ring technique perfected in the 1920s by the noted designer Anne Orr. Many of the designs are simple enough for a beginner, while others will catch the interest of even the most experienced of tatters.
