Tatting

Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace from a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as Doilies , collars accessories such as earrings and necklaces, and other decorative pieces. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains formed from a series of cow hitch or Half-Hitch knots, called Double Stitches over a core thread. Gaps can be left between the stitches to form picots, which are used for practical construction as well as decorative effect.
