What is TATTING?
Tatting is a form of lace work made with knots using thread that are group together into rings or chains an interspersed with decorative picots.  The way the knots, or double stitches as there are also known as,  are shaped and joined together create the variety of lace be it edgings, doilies, snowflakes, medallions and many more.

Tatting has developed from the traditional flat designs that are attached to collars, linens and hankies to wearable designs such as jewelry,  and ornaments like sun-catchers and balls and other accessories.  Tatting has also gone three-dimensional where many designers have come up with flowers on stalks, character figurines  such as snowman, leprechauns and halloween monsters!
