Dear Reader,

Tattingram...Uh?!? What is it?

Justified! Any of you who didn't guess is officially justified. A "tattingram" is a tangram made with tatted pieces. With 7 simple shapes you can play for ages! There're two principal distinctions: only rotations and rotations plus flipping the parallelogram over. With this tatting pattern, only rotations are permitted. I needed to add two joining picots to basic shapes to obtain the candle.

Warning: to be used only under childish supervision!

Giustificati! Tutti quelli che non hanno indovinato sono giustificati! Un "tattingram" è il tangram fatto col chiacchierino (scusate, ma proprio non mi suonava bene "chiacchiogram" o "frivogram"!!!)  Con 7 figure di base si può giocare per ore! Ci sono due movimenti principali: solo rotazioni e rotazioni più il capovolgimento del solo parallelogramma. Con questo schema, si possono fare bene solo rotazioni. Ho dovuto aggiungere un paio di picot di unione per ottenere la candela.

Attenzione: da usarsi solo sotto la supervisione di un bambino!

And now, sorry I'm going on holiday, but I'll be right back!
Adesso, scusatemi, vado in vacanza, ma torno subito!
