Herringbone Hookup-
Learn the Herringbone Hookup,
or How I did Dutch Needletatting the Lazy Way

After enduring the frustration of fiddling with wily inverted picots, a great light bulb went off over my head. “Hairpin Crochet!” was my epiphany. We will learn to create a similar effect to the Dutch Needle Tatting originated by To De Haan-Van Beek using a technique originally used for joining strips of Hairpin Crochet Lace.

Students will learn to make simple flowers and leaves without a pattern.

Intermediate

Love Bug Earrings/Necklace-I’ve Been Bitten by the Love Bug Earrings and Pendant Set

This set is an introduction into working with beads and two shuttles. Techniques include a split ring, picots with multiple beads, joins between beads on a picot, and loading beads onto a long picot with a crochet hook. The beads are all on Shuttle 2 (notated as “upbeads” in Ninaese) or loaded onto a picot while the work is in progress.

Beginner/Intermediate:  Knowledgeable and proficient with rings, split rings, chains, and joins. 

Materials: Size 40 or 50 thread in the colorway of your choice, 150 #11 seed beads in a coordinating color, 3 4mm bicone crystals or drop beads of comparable size, 1 jump ring, earring findings, chain necklace. The tatter will
need the standard tatting kit including a fine crochet hook or floss threader for loading beads, a paperclip for holding beads on a picot, a big-eye beading needle (or bead needle of one’s choice) and a fine tapestry needle for hiding ends. Each piece requires 6 yards thread wound CTM on two shuttles, 2 yards on Shuttle 1 and 4 yards on Shuttle 2. For each piece, string 39 beads on Shuttle 2 thread. The long beaded picot will require an additional 8 beads and the bicone crystal or drop bead.

Turn Tatting Inside Out

Explore the work of To De Haan-Van Beek, author of New Dimensions in Tatting. We will be focusing on the inverted picot and will execute a simple project. Students will learn to create a simple sketch or drawing to use as a pattern.

Intermediate

Materials: #20 thread in two or more colors, two tapestry needles (blunt point with a large eye), hackle pliers or hemostat, pencil and paper, small button or bead (around ¼” or so). If you desire to turn your project into a heirloom brooch, I will have plenty of pin backs available.
