Tatting: jewelry, motifs, doilies, hankies, books, crosses, and much more.
Oh I like that, I never used a needle before I can see where sometimes it would benefit me but for now it actually confuses me.:)
Needle tatting is extremely easy. I teach new students this method so they don't get discouraged and quit. The needle is great for long JK's and when you have lots of beads. Also great, when designing a pattern that requires lots of beads. But, I do prefer shuttle tatting and usually use the shuttle.
Very nice necklace!! :)
