To do or not to do, that is the question! Or again about the front and back sides of tatting.
Hello, everyone! Today I want to touch again on the topic of front and back side of tatting. Ah, don’t get angry and don’t throw slippers at me! This dispute reminded me of the dispute between midgets from the novel by Jonathan Swift. On which side should the egg be cracked? I don’t think it matters. Because it is important to get to the delicious middle! Of course, every tatter is free to do as you like. But how I always want to get a “delicious”, beautiful, tender and perfect result!
I personally prefer to always distinguish between the front and back of my work. It’s probably a habit. This is especially true when you need to connect rows of different colors. I am sure you will agree with me, because if the connection is wrong, the product may not look very beautiful. But we strive for perfection, don’t we?
By the way, I was inspired to write this post by my new pattern, in which I connect the rows of white and red: https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/fish-heart-tatting-pattern/
So, look closely at the photo.
In the first case, the connection is correct. Light threads do not peek out between the green ones.
And in the second case, the light thread is a small strip between the green ones.
But sometimes, you may need just such “wrong” strokes. After all, the fantasy of tatters is limitless and who knows what else we can come up with! So, decide for yourself, to do or not to do the front or back side of tatting! And as another argument, watch my video, please.
