Thread: Simple needle tatting patterns

  1. #1


    Question Simple needle tatting patterns

    I learned to tat with a shuttle, only about a year back I learned needle tatting. Yesterday I visited my aunt, and learned her to needle tat (she can't move her hands enough for shuttle tatting). Does anyone know where to find some easy needle tatting patterns for her?

    Any basic shuttle tatting pattern can be done with the needle.

    Having needle tatted for about 15 years before I learned to shuttle tat, I never found a pattern that I couldn't do with the needle.

    Being ambitatterous like Carol I agree that just about any shuttle pattern can be made with a needle.

    Rings and Chains, .. hold off on the floating rings, and split rings or chains until she has a good grasp of rings and chains. Oh, skip patterns with obvious Lock Joins, too. Shuttle joins are easy.

    I learned to needle tatt with this pattern and video http://www.instructables.com/id/Lear...wer-Pendant-1/ then moved on to this one which (as a new tater) I am in love with at the moment. http://www.instructables.com/id/Need...ephine-Chains/ I am making one for everyone who wants one :)

    Sparkle, Kersti, our leader, just started a thread that featured Halloween patterns. Pumpkins, spiders, ghosts, witches, bats and the like.
    It was great being able to find them all in one place. Sparkle, you could start a new one with a Thanksgiving 'theme" -- might want to include: autumn leaves, harvests, as well.

    There's a tatted 3D chicken egg cosy that would look pretty good as a turkey. it was in Moje Robotki, but I think there is a bootleg scan somewhere on the internet...
