Tatting is simple and portable, and this concealed spiral bound book can be laid flat for ease of use.
It includes lots of useful tips throughout and a Tools and Techniques section.
It features instruction to make 65 patterns or motifs and 60 designs.
This is a great book from a U.K. author. Tatting is basically a handmade lace, with each stitch composed of two half-hitch knots.
The appeal of the craft is that it is simple and portable, you can take your tatting equipment anywhere, and now that "Tatting Collage" is republished as a concealed spiral bound book it will be easy to use 'on-the-go'.
As well as offering great fun and flexibility, it also avoids the need to handle large and complicated pieces of tatting - a bonus if you are pressed for time or are new to the craft and looking for encouragement.

Review by wyvernfriend
This isn't my usual type of book but after seeing some fo the amazing things a friend can do with tatting I thought I'd take a look at this one when I came across it. This is a compact book that has a lot of ideas in it. Multiple designs for flowers, butterflies and other shapes and then ideas to combine these to create pictures in thread. Intimidating and inspiring but I'm not sure it's really a beginners book. I'm still peering at the pictures trying to work out how to do it.
