Overview

Tatting (Fully Illustrated How to instructions) by Therese de Dillmont

On account of a similarity in their construction, a chapter on tatting seems to form a natural sequence to the one on crochet and is in some ways a preparation for that on macramé which succeeds it.
The English name of tatting is said to be derived from tatters and to denote the frail disconnected character of the fabric. By the Italians it was formerly called occhi, whilst in the East it still bears the name of makouk, from the shuttle used in making it.
In the eighteenth century, when tatting was in great vogue, much larger shuttles than our present ones were used, because of the voluminous materials they had to carry, silk cord being one.
