How to make straight long picots.
Hello everyone! First, I want to thank everyone for your prayers and support. My husband is doing better. The new cardiogram showed only one systole. My dear hubby will have another checkup next week. And I hope everything will be fine.
And now about something even more pleasant. 🙂 I have already written in previous posts about my hobby for long picots. Yes, I created a new collection based on this method. This is Summer mood. https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/summer-mood-collection/
So, you asked what picot gauge I use. You can take a “tatting needle and picot gauge”. But I do not like bulky tools. I use plastic strips of different widths or homemade cardboard templates. Because you can make them as many as you like, any width and length! https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/2019/10/22/additional-tools-for-tatting/
Also, I needed 10 strips of different widths to make the collar necklace “Sea Glass”! https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/product/sea-glass-tatting-pattern/
I’m putting together a collection of platinum stripes! Because I like long gauge. After all, this is very convenient for weaving several picots in a row. But this is in my opinion, of course. I made a video for you how to make even long picots. And of course I show 4 ways.
Tatting with a shuttle.
Tatting with a needle.
This my favorite tatting tool – the netting needle. Don’t forget to come back to me after watching the video, please! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Of-fmKKNp4A&t=20s
I hope you enjoy tat the long picots. It’s so exciting, isn’t it? In addition, I always call for the expansion of knowledge and skills. My great-grandfather used to say: to know and be able to – not to carry, but in life it will come in handy. Oh, sorry, I don’t know the English equivalent of this proverb!
