Tatting Patterns For One Shuttle, Book 1, by Mark Myers



You can order via paypal. Go to paypal
and use tatman at tat-man dot net for the transaction.

If you want to order this book using a different payment method other than paypal, EMAIL ME and state how many copies you want. All copies will be autographed especially for you.

I created this 25 page book out of a need that I saw from my beginner students. They were always requesting patterns that required only one shuttle work and how-to instructions that are clear and concise. So I have put together a collection of 17 patterns that use only one shuttle. It also includes detailed instructions with lots of close up pictures for every step. A must have book for the beginner or the well versed tatter that likes fresh new ideas.

The book has 25 pages of full color on 32 lb stock paper, comb bound, 8.5x11 size.

It costs $15 plus S&H of $2.55 First Class US postage, or $1.59 book rate(4-6 weeks). If you prefer a different shipping method or it is an international order, please contact me. Please allow at the most two weeks to fill your order and time for shipping.

One of the main features in the book is the half closed ring. By using the ring and half closed ring, many intricate designs can be made that are simple in structure. The half closed ring is used both as a decorative element or as a bridge between two rings, similar to a chain.
