an edging to match with "fiore di filet"

It's not as bad, isn't it? Well, I haven't got another square tatted yet, but I took some photos while I was tatting.

Two shuttles pattern, shoe lace tricks, shuttle lock joins, reverse tatting, block tatting...

Lucky me! A good friend ( ) had sent me a ton of pins. They come in handy with all this block tatting! Thank you very much!

(I added the second thread without knots, with the help of Jane Eborall! Check it in her website!)

The square of previous post, the "flower of filet", started with a little ring 3-3. I used two colours to better show the pattern and then it could be clearer when I switched shuttles.

After the little ring, I haven't reversed work, added the second shuttle and tatted one ds, a very small picot (vsp) and 6ds.

Then I've tatted 4 rows of block tatting ( see
With the orange thread (the core tread in that position) I tatted a ring 3+3, joining to previous ring.

... to be continued (with the same chain showed in pic.1).



  1. Love the pins, I look forward to seeing how it works out, looking good so far


Thank you very much for all your nice comments.
