Christmas Angels And Other Tatting Patterns (Dover Knitting, Crochet, Tatting, Lace)

The delicate art of tatting requires only a shuttle to produce elegant creations such as those displayed in this volume. Prize-winning tatting expert Monica Hahn provides patterns for 51 lovely projects―many with a Christmas theme. Intricate but not difficult to master, the designs for these miniature heirlooms include a variety of Christmas tree ornaments: Clover-Leaf Bell, Evergreen Christmas Tree, Star of Leaves, Five-Pointed Star, Rose Ornament, Poinsettia, Spider Web Ornament, and, of course, two splendid Christmas Angels. Additional patterns in this attractive collection include lovely edgings such as Grape, Crown, Happy Talk, and Merri-Go-Round for "dressing up" napkins, placemats, handkerchiefs, and other items. Still other patterns are perfect for creating lovely collars, bookmarks, picture frames, and a variety of domestic accessories. Easy-to-follow instructions and over 60 sharply detailed black-and-white photographs and line illustrations make it easy to create these tatted masterpieces.

Innovative well documented designs. Nicely illustrated with easy to follow instructions. There are projects for the novice tatters, with beautiful designs for the advanced. The patterns are an exquisite collection. I wish everyone could meet this author as I have, her enthusiasm for tatting is contagious. Watching Monica Hahn work her magic with the tatting shuttle sparked a tremendous interest in me to learn this form of needlework. A book such as this will give many hours of pleasure and assist anyone's level of expertise. There are also harder to find types of tatting in this book such as cluny or petal stitch tatting. The author has included how-to instructions as well as project patterns for this unusual tatting type. This book is a great addition to any tatters library.

Mrs. Hahn, who has been tatting for over 50 years again presents beautiful patterns to work. Her instructions on doing Cluny tatting are right on the mark.Snowflakes, angels, edgings and collars are just a few of the projects packed into this inexpensive book. A must have

This is a great little book - quite a few pattern, various designs - snowflakes, an angel, butterflies, little doiles, and a 3-D umbrella! Great for a shower, or if you have Travelers insurance. (use black thread)Small section on Cluny tatting - and it's all you need - i'm a beginner and i learned cluny just fine from it! I think there are basic tatting instructions, but i learns from Linden's Easy tatting, so I breezed by them.Great book for the price!

I'm just learning how to tat and found these patterns easy to follow. I'm working my way through the book with plans to make them all. I haven't learned to use a shuttle yet and am doing them with the needle tatting method and have been able to adapt the patterns without too much difficulty.

It's hard to stay with the pattern. I think the designs are super but the layout of instructions reads like a book. I like instructions laid out in 1. 2. 3 format. I will probably rewrite them so they are easier to read and keep up with my place.

This is the first tating bok I ever bought, and I have been quite disappointed with the patterns.There's some angles and some snowflakes, but a lot of the patterns are "one shuttle" works and I just can't make those look right because I can somehow never get the "bits of thread between rings" to be the same length.However the book has some very interesting patterns in it, like a 3d butterfly which I really want to make but since I have no clue of the english crocheting terms and those would be necessary to finish the butterfly I'm a little stuck *g*Anyway. if you're able to do "one shuttle work" really well and like stars and collars (3 of those in the book) this book might be just the thing for you :-)

This book is an absolute delight containing a huge selection of patterns by Monica Hahn. There are angels, bells, Christmas trees, snowflakes, doilies, bookmarks, collars, all sorts of things. Most are worked and shown in white, probably to facilitate the black and white photography used in the book, and the patterns are imaginative and interesting to work.The patterns are written in longhand with no diagrams but the pattern writing language is clear and consistent. This is a book which will suit someone who has learnt the basics (although as usual with the Dover Publications books basic instructions are provided) and who wants a good range of patterns to work with. It represents good value for money and will provide many hours of tatting pleasure.

This booklet offers nice Christmas patterns, my only dislike and reason why I only gave 3 stars is the way the instructions are presented. They are crammed as text and very difficult to follow if not rewritten and reorganized for clear view. Other than that, I enjoyed shuttle tatting for Christmas projects.
