Description: Shuttle Tatting instructions by Carrie
To make the chains used to join motifs in tatting you need a shuttle loaded with thread and a ball of thread. In my diagrams I have used two different colors to make the stitches easier to see. Hold the ball of thread on your right hand and begin to wrap it around as if shuttle tatting. Instead of bringing it back up to your thumb, wrap once around your pinkey. The pinkey will control the tension. Use your ring finger or the middle one or even the pinkey and ring fingers together if it is more comfortable. The finger used is not the important thing, controlling the tension is.
