I like to try out new tatting techniques, so I was happy to try out Ninetta Caruso's treble tatting when I saw it.here. I didn't make much progress, just a tangled mess, which is no fault of Ninetta's, just my poor grasp. When I read muskaan's description  of an alternative way of creating the stitch, I gave it a go and got along much better. It just seems more straight forward to me. So I could go on to tat Ninetta's spiral ring. Aha. I think.


  1. Looks like you've got it done pat!

  2. It looks a little like crocheted bullions!

  3. Looks like you are doing well!! :)

  4. Jane, that's great! Of course you can choose the side you like, that's your spiral anyway :-) but I've chosen that showed in your 2nd pic, the side with the bare thread visible, it would have been the back side for me. It is like in the spiral ring by Lenka, posting or not the shuttle inside the ring before closing it, that gives the direction of the spiral. I'm so sorry if my directions were not clear, but I do think the alternative method by Muskaan is really clever.

    1. I understand, these are just trying things out, so I didn’t always follow your directions well!

  5. Yay !!! Spiral rings bring out the best of trebles visually, I think, though everything is possible with the tds.
