Been tatting for 45 years. This is a simple pattern and would be good for a beginners I have taught lessons for many years. A good book to learn from is the how to book it is how I learned.

I too have wanted to try tatting. I also would like to know if there is an instructional, step by step, viceo?

Craftsy has an online shuttle tatting course in HD video at http://www.craftsy.com/shuttletatting - it's a nice way to learn and you can ask questions and receive feedback from the instructor and other students, too.

This is beautiful and I have always wanted to tat. But cannot not find anyone to teach me. Are there no toutorials and where can I go to find them. Carla Tucker

There are videos on you tube. Very good and slow as you are learning.
