Size 60 Thread


As I tatted this pattern from the Anna Burda magazine of May 1984 today, I realised how old fashioned it is. Modern tatting tends to be much sleeker and use picots for joining rather than decoration. So be it, old fashioned or traditional is not necessarily bad!

  1. Very pretty and good to go back to how tatting used to look sometimes, just reminds us how far it has progressed.

  3. They are quite lovely. While "modern" tatting is nice and can be quite beautiful of itself, sometimes it doesn't look o much like tatting.

  4. I like both modern and so-called old fashioned tatting. Your doily is very nice!
