This latest book by Judith Connors continues the study of beaded tatting. It includes excellent instructions and extremely clear diagrams for basic beading techniques as well as more unusual bead placements. Her method on placing a bead in the center of a ring using a long picot is quite progressive. Basic instructions for needle tatting, split ring tatting, tatted squares or blocks, Japanese style needle tatting (double-ended hook),and padded/pearl tatting are accompanied by patterns using those techniques. Her plaited, multi-color tatted braid is fascinating. The free-form tatted designs will inspire even the most experienced tatter. A comprehensive reference book.
