Dear Reader,
I share here what I like and what works for me. If you've been following me, you know that I can change my mind from time to time, and feel free to comment that I'm completely wrong, you may be right. I'm not running a business. I'm not paid and have never received any compensation or facilitation for any review/brand/site here mentioned. In case one day we'll ever meet, I'll be the one offering you a cup of Italian coffee, too.

treble tatting

That is a method resembling the appearance of treble stitches in tatting.
Video link in YouTube:
Patterns in the video are original @Antonina Caruso 2018

It can be done in rings or chains.
Start with a normal double stitch, then a very small picot and another double stitch. Take a loop by laying the picot across the ball thread and pull the thread up, through the picot. Then, take another loop of the ball thread and pull it through the previous loop. Now slip the shuttle through the loop thus formed. Don't tighten it, yet.
I take a loop of the core thread in my ring finger, then pass the shuttle from back to front, through the loop, 3 times.
Tighten the ball thread and don't let the core thread slipping out.
Then, pull the core thread and tat another double stitch, leaving a very small picot.
Repeat, starting from the just tatted very small picot.
Treble tatting can be used to make any simple ring, all treble tatting. Alternatively, it can be used as a decorative picot.
Start always with a very small picot.
The space between treble stitches can be used to join elements in next round.
Thank you for watching.

Gli schemi in questo video sono originali @Antonina Caruso 2018
Punto alto a chiacchierino.
Può essere fatto sia nei cerchi che negli archi.
Si inizia con un normale nodo doppio, poi si fa un picot molto piccolo e un altro nodo doppio. Prendere un'asola di filo posizionando il picot sul filo del gomitolo e tirare il filo verso l'alto, attraverso il picot. Quindi, prendere un'altra asola del filo del gomitolo e tirala attraverso la precedente asola. Ora far scivolare la navetta attraverso la seconda asola così formata. Non stringere ancora.
Trattenere il filo della navetta nell'anulare, quindi passare la navetta da dietro a davanti, attraverso questo spazio tra l'anulare e l'asola, per 3 volte.
Stringere il filo del gomitolo stando attenti a non far sfilare e arrotolare il filo della navetta.
Quindi, in ultimo, tirare il filo della navetta e fare un altro nodo doppio,lasciando lo spazio di un picot molto piccolo.
Ripetere, ripartendo dal piccolo picot appena fatto.
Questi "punti alti" possono essere usati per creare un semplice anello. In alternativa, uno solo di questi può essere usato come picot decorativo.
Si inizia sempre con un picot molto piccolo.
Lo spazio tra i punti alti può essere utilizzato per unire gli elementi del giro successivo.

Vi ringrazio anticipatamente, nel caso che vogliate guardare il video:
