wide

Adjective "wide" not (yet) referring to that doily!! But you should make those picots out, don't you? That is called - as I just discovered - "wide or lochness monster picot". They are great to be gripped by curled rings!

I thought that I would have never managed to tat even one wide picot, but then I found a great video by mytattingplace (I don't know/remember her name, sorry) here: https://youtu.be/qONlAylfXIQ ;and a tutorial by Claudia Meza here: http://howtotat.blogspot.com/2010/04/lochness-monster-picot.html and here: http://howtotat.blogspot.it/2010/04/wide-picot-picot-ancho.html
There's another video by Karen Cabrera (Lesson 34), here: https://youtu.be/IaT-Pktx9nw  , the difference between those videos is that Karen makes it in the way also explained by Claudia (2ds followed by 1ds over the picot's loop), while the lady "mytattingplace" tats only one ds and then tats the next over the loop. I like this second one, the loop is hidden inside all ds under the wide picot, just to my liking.

I promise this motif will be bigger, as the size 80 thread permits!


Where I'm going to use these?



Ha det!

  2. Oh this is exciting to see and I will try them. thankyou for the references too I love you tatting as always. I don't think my book has these in them so they missed one tatting technique, I thought this book I just got had them all in it :)
