View Full Version : Tatting using thick thread (Trapiho yarn)

I have finally edited the video on tatting using Trapilho yarn. This yarn have some elasticity in it, but the main technique which is a mix between finger tatting and needle tatting (though no needle is used).
I plan on making another edition of the video, showing how to tat a bucket using Trapilho yarn.

oh AnnB, wish I could view but have downloading limitations with my internet service.
Oh yes... No flips. The left hand loops are exactly like the loops for needle tatting. When doing the join, you put the left thread through the loop made with the left thread. I'm guessing you should have put the right hand thread through the loop, like hanging the join on the needle... ?
So what material is the Trapiho yarn? Acrylic? Cotton fabric tube? Natural fiber?

The join I used in the video is a Catherine Wheel Join that looks like a dst when done. It does not change the directoin of the chain as a lock join (right hand thread through loop made of right hand thread).
Trapilho yarn is made of left-overs from clothes production and is of your ordinary t-shirt stuf. The one used in the video feels like cotton, but I have another one that some synthetic stuff (allmos black blue with some gold). I'm looking forward to testing that one :-)

Yup, looks more like macrame! But, big thread needs big thread technique. I love it! And, as always, the knot does not care how it is made! What made you think of this, it's fabulous!
