tatting fantasia 6

Dear tatting friends, My new book is ready!!! Some of you have suggested me to invent easy patterns. I have given it much consideration and realized that modern tatting cannot any more be done without the techniques invented in the last decades. For example, if we compare tatting with knitting or crocheting, we see that the latter have a much larger number of techniques. In my opinion, even a beginner must learn all these new techniques, because each of them gives an interesting sign to the modern tatting patterns, which are not any more comparable with the old ones. I have spent a long time developing patterns of same shape to be the same size. That will enable you to combine them together, giving wings to your fantasy. For example, you can use triangles to make hexagons, stars, rhombuses end edges. Hexagons can be knotted together closely or the little trinagular spaces between them can be left open. With the squares you will find a surprise. This was exactly the result I was hoping for you: that you can take the small elements and combine them to obtain interesting works in any size you want. The book contains 6 triangles of same size, 7 hexagons of same size, 5 squares of same size plus 2 small squares fitting into the space left open of the bigger squares. I wish you much fun with this new book
