Review of Tatted Lace Book For Advanced Tatters.

This is wonderful, but for advanced tatters. It has clear videos that come to life when scanned with phone, this book get 5 stars from me for this alone, I love the patterns and will be making more to post. It is in Korean mostly, everything designed with precision. 
Very Artistic! Fantastic!
Not for beginners.
I have admired this pattern and finally received the book :)

This book ( Tatting Lace With Your Life ) is filled with wonderful designs
some will make an appearance on this blog :)

With complex techniques ,beautifully diagrammed for the English Speaking. 


This is whole cover and I did purchase this at Handy Hands (click here)

I did had to make and use picot gauges (upper right hand of picture). and clunies for this pattern.
  unlike my other books that doesn't even mention the gauge to use.
Love that this book has the scanner reference in it
and I do believe this is first of it kind, that I have every seen.

    1. Really, I am afraid of that stacked tatting for some reason it makes me nervous there is patterns with that in it too.

  4. Wow, Carollyn, that sounds a really interesting book, I love your first motif from it. Yes, very useful to have the picot sizes given!! (I know which other book you're referring to!) Sensational to be able to access videos from the book, very 21st Century.

    1. Very funny, you do realize I can not crochet well at all, and have big trouble with directions and get very confused with what you think is simple :)

    1. Yes it is complex, sometimes I think of my father who enjoyed reading a math book like he couldn't wait to see what's next the harder the more intriguing it was.

    1. Oh, you are supposed to use size 40 thread look close look closely at the part that says "ready" I did it a bit too small in size 80 I was confused for a bit but gauges works with size 40 I adjusted mine and plan on doing this better with size 40 :)
