A Tatter's Workbook
A Tatter's Workbook
by A. Tatter

ISBN 1-891656-35X
This is a book a tatter created in the 1920's, recording patterns created and practiced. The identity of this tatter is unknown.
The workbook pages, typed by the tatter, are shown at 70% with the actual sample tatted by the author either pinned or sewn to the page before it was copied by Lacis. The patterns were all tested and reproduced beside the patterns to act as a visual pattern.
This book can be used for patterns, inspiration and as a coffee table book.... even non-tatters will enjoy looking at it.

But, even if you find yourself challenged by the language, very detailed graphic patterns make work simple. There are very good illustrations at the beginning of the book that shows split rings, split chains, block tatting, scmr and more!
It may be a small book, but it sure packs a wallop!
