The one I made for demonstration has a silver thread running through it but I think we will work first with the yarn and special needle to get the basics down.
It is formed with a ring with picots and then the Josephine Knot which is one half of the tatting double stitch knot.
I am looking forward to the students learning this great technique and to start following patterns.
If you would like to learn to needle tat, I do give private lessons and am available for workshops. Leave a comment and I will get back with you.
