The first round is where I got stuck for countless hours and wasted yards of thread. From the standpoint of a non professional tatter (and I was a beginner when I tried this one) it was very frustrating!
I wish I had read your review before I bought this book at my local craft store! :)
But again I am glad for the experience of being able to figure out these little errors on my own-Maybe next time I will read and think through the pattern thoroughly before attempting to tackle it! :)

Note from Janette Baker: "It has come to my attention that there are errors in the Daffodil Doily pattern on page 41. I am enclosing a corrected pattern for that Doily. I apologize for the inconvenience. "
Bev says: if there are any errors in THIS one, it is the typists…but I did proof read. It would be hard for her to notify all the people who bought Learn to TAT from Booksellers. I had the same experience with a Jan Stawitz book (out of print now) and he sent a correction to those who had bought from him….
I dont mean to nitpick, but this is a very important part and it seems as if even Janette Baker herself has not noticed this even after I pointed it out to her in great detail in my email to her.
Oh well, if she wants to omit that, its her pattern I guess. At least I tried my best to help.
Thank you so much for posting this!! I am a new tatter and knew that this pattern had to be written incorrectly after completing the second ring, but was second guessing myself because I am a beginner. It was very frustrating not to find pattern errata published on Annies Attic website. I've been working my way through the less complex projects in the book with the goal of making this pretty doily. You are a blessing! I've crocheted for most of my life, knit, embroider, sew..etc. I've never become so addicted so quickly to any form of lace making or needlework as I have to tatting.
I'm about 1/3 of the way finished with the last round and will report back when I'm finished as to whether my fix has worked. Enjoy!
I have Learn to Tat by Jeanette Baker and love her DVD instructions. In fact, it is how I learned to tat. I tatted the doily the directions didn't make sense to me, but thought it was just my inexperience, so I just looked at the picture and tried to follow it. My doily turned out OK, but didn't really look like the one in the picture. I am glad you posted the corrections as I was really, really frustrated and probably untatted as much as I tatted.
The picture of my doily is in my album under "first doily", but I couldn't get it to post here.
Thanks for posting the corrections so I can print it out and put it in the book.
Me too Janet. The DVD included in the Learn to Tat by Jeanette Baker got me to where I could tat (finally after many years of trying). I never tried to tat that particular doily, but now I feel compelled to go back a look at it (armed with the corrected instructions, which I will put in my book).
