A Bounty of Tatted Delights
by Karen Bovard Sayre
A Bounty of Tatted Delights features a unique tatted Cornucopia design. The cornucopia is a myth based upon a goat’s horn with an endless supply of food & drink. Thus the Cornucopia represents BOUNTY. The Cornucopia is a truly unique design featuring a new tatted design called 'Interlocking Chains' to create the body of the Cornucopia. Interlocking Rings are used on the the front and back edges of the Interlocking Chains body rounds to complete a dimensional appearance reminiscent of a basket. The ‘backside’ of the piece is uniquely different from the other side...you decide which is the frontside or the backside. To supply the TATTED DELIGHTS, 38 fruits and vegetable designs are presented here. Utilizing only rings and split rings, the fruit & vegetable patterns are designed to be proportionally unique to fill your Cornucopia. Design variations are presented for several of the designs. These designs feature & take advantage of the large color selection of the Lizbeth line of threads. They are a ‘delight’ of color too. Included in this 46 page, full-color book is a tutorial on Shuttle-Tatting-with-a Needle Technique instructions to give the tatter an understanding of how to utilize The ShuttleSmith’s illustrated Split Ring Tatting patterns & technique tips for tatting success. Comprehensive illustrated patterns (featuring color-coded, full-color diagrams) are utilized to get quick, yet thorough, working details.
