Crochet tatting is a unique form of tatting using a crochet hook. Traditional tatting is worked with shuttles but cro-tat is more similar in nature to needle tatting where the knots or stitches are worked on to the needle and then more thread is pulled through them. The technique itself is very simple and as most other needlework very versatile. With the necessary imagination, you can create the most amazing pieces of needlework and similar handicraft. Back by popular demand - Learn to Cro-Tat includes one size 6 cro-tat hook, how-to instructions including colour photographs, plus three brand new projects all made using size 10 cotton thread. You will love learning about or getting reacquainted with this beautiful technique.
