Leather into Lace – Intro to Tatting
In France it was called frivolet. In America it was called tatting, which was creating durable lace from a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, accessories such as earrings and necklaces, and other decorative pieces. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains formed from a series of cow hitch or half-hitch knots, called double stitches, over a core thread. Gaps can be left between the stitches to form picots, which are used for practical construction as well as decorative effect. Learn and complete a bracelet while learning to chain together double stitches (ds) and picots, and cast on beads. This quick and easy bracelet comes together with this age old technique to design a fun modern leather bracelet with tons of beads options.
