"Mastering Tatting" Twisting Picots

Finished this round I wet and blocked, colors are darker when wet.

I am excited about the colors and have enjoyed twisting these picots in the roses, more of this to come on next round too! I love this two picot method and think it would be great to place in other designs hope you enjoy the movie :)


I went to the beach last November and had a wonderful time with my sister in law and she taught me to pick up the imperfect shells and enjoy there beauty I spent most of childhood at the beach and discarded imperfect one, Thank you Debbie for the wonderful life lesson, I love you :)
Life is beautiful
have a wonderful day!

  2. Gorgeous! Isn't it fun to see how the colors darken when wet? It gives me inspiration to try other colors.

  5. oh that is lovely and the technique is really interesting, thank you for sharing the video. I love picking shells at the beach too, when I was a child we also used to find pumice stones, very rare these days.

  6. What a beautiful doily, perfect tatting, and so tiny ! Excellent video !! Thanks for sharing :-)
    I would've thought that it was a twisted double picot - much easier to handle & quicker to make.
    Life is beautiful because of it's imperfections - only then can one truly appreciate the rare perfections :-)

  10. I have this book for a good while as well and I never would have picked up on twisting the picots. May I ask how you knew to do so?
    This is gorgeous and will be stunning when completed. Will you fray the thistle part? Helen(Fidgement on Craftree)

    1. That is a good question😄when I did the other doily on page 74 it said to twist the picot it doesn't say how but I was using a crochet hook cause my shuttle didn't have one and then I realized I could twist it tighter than hers in the book. On this rose she doesn't say to twist it at all, but I like the look of it💟😄💟thanks for asking good question I had to think😄
