Perfect join tatting
Every week I try to make a new project. Alas, this does not always work out. If the project is small, it is quite possible to create a tutorial in one week. But I need to try very hard, I assure you!
Sometimes, to fulfill an idea, I need to come up with new ways, new methods. I also try new unusual tools with pleasure! This week’s project is a small Mandala doily. I recalled all the methods that I know to do perfect join. The lack of extra knots gives this doily absolute openwork and airiness. Do you agree? https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/tatting-pattern-doily-mandala/
So, 12 ways to connect a chain with a long picot. You can watch the video on my YouTube channel. Perhaps I am not entirely accurate in terminology. If you know the exact name of each parameter, leave a comment on the post. Also share if you know any other method. It will be interesting and useful! https://youtu.be/qWPPlAbps5I
Method 1, for the shuttle.
This is the easiest way. You pull shuttle thread into a long picot. Pass the shuttle into the new loop and tighten the thread. But the node that is formed by this method, alas, does not suit me.
Method 2, for the shuttle.
This method is similar to the first, but in this case, a loop creates a thread ball.
Method 3, for two shuttles.
I use this method for tat Onion Ring. For example, doily “Honeycomb”: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/honeycomb-doily-pattern/
Method 4, embroidery needle is used instead of a shuttle.
I think every tatter used this method at least once. Because it is a perfect join (in my opinion, of course).
Method 5, for needle.
This method repeats the first method for the shuttle. Only you use the tatting needle in this case. This method does not suit me either.
Method 6, for needle.
This method repeats the second method for the shuttle.
Method 7, for needle.
This method is convenient to use if you have a small ball. Because the ball will need to be passed through the loop.
Method 8, for needle.
This method without knots – perfect join. Yes?
Method 9, for netting needle.
I am delighted with this method! Netting needle is an ideal tool in this case.
Method 10, for cro-tatting.
You use CH (Chain Stitch) for the connection with this method.
Method 11, for cro-tatting.
You use SC (Single Crochet) for the connection with this method.
Method 12, for cro-tatting.
You use DC (Double Crochet) for the connection with this method.
You can choose any method for joining a long picot and chain. And try to create your perfect “Mandala” doily!
