Tatting Shuttles - knitsewcraft.co.uk online store

What is Tatting? Dating from the early 19th Century, tatting is a method of making lace edging, doilies, bookmarks, baby bonnets, booties, and bridal veils from fine thread. Tatted craftwork includes decorative edgings on handkerchiefs, purses, pillow cases, placemats, cards, and clothing (especially collars). Lightweight, comfortable to hold & easy to work with, we stock Pony and Prym tatting shuttles. Ideal for creating elegant handmade, durable lacework and filet crochet pieces by looping and knotting with a single thread of yarn. The lace is formed by a pattern of small rings and chains. Tip: plain plastic shuttles are great if you want to bling them out and decorate with your own style of decoupage
