Introduction 



Tktting has been the favorite form of fancy work since the 16th Century, and possesses endless 
possibilities of adaptation. The shuttles used at that time were exquisitely made in ivory, gold and 
silver, and one may see in museums the beautiful and costly inlaid shuttles. 

The term Tatting is derived from an Indian word "Tattie, " which means to make tight or taut, — 
a sort of half knotted work done with different sized shuttles and many kinds of thread. The French 
call it "Frivolit^" from its delicate and lacy appearance. In the present day simple designs are com- 
bined with novelty braids, laces and hand embroidery, also the tatted flowers or flower shaped medal- 
lions are used in place of the solid embroidery, thus giving to these modern designs an artistic effect 
almost equal to the fragile and beautiful ones of the 16th Century. 



Publishers' Announcement 

The vogue of tatting prompted the publication of this instruction book. With the assistance of 
expert designers we have chosen over ISO new models, all beautiful and artistic patterns, in Edges, 
Insertions, Medallions, Appliqu^, Luncheon Sets, Dresser Scarfs, Pillow Slips, Towels, Nightgowns, 
Waists, Collars, Bags, Children's Dresses, Handkerchiefs, Candleshades, Vases, Bonbon Baskets, 
Hat Bands, etc. 

An extensive use is now being made of much coarser threads for tatting than formerly were con- 
sidered suitable, and this form of needlework is now often used for the edges of towels, scarfs, center- 
pieces, etc., where in years gone by it was confined to very fine threads and lacy patterns. 

Beautiful effects can be made by tatted designs combining two or more colors. In this book we have 
only attempted to show a few of the many uses and adaptations to which these original tatted motifs 
can be put.

Contains sixty illustrations, many of which are in color. 
A thoroughly practical book for learner as well as the more 
experienced hand. Price 10 cents a copy. 



Corticelli Lessons in Crochet, Book No. 2 

Every lover of crochet needlework will want a copy of 
this book. Plenty of pretty pieces suitable for holiday 
gifts are clearly described and illustrated. Yokes, Baby

Centerpieces, Doilies, Medallions, Collars, Napkin Rings, 
Sports Coats and Blouses, Lingerie Hats, Golf Hose, 
Crocheted Buttons, all can be easily made by following 
the simple instructions given. Price 10 cents a copj'. 




Materials for Working 

The materials needed for the Art of Tatting are few and simple — a shuttle, a crochet hook, and 
thread which has a "cable laid" twist are all that are required. 

Shuttles. For ordinary work the vulcanite shuttles, which can be bought for ten cents and up, 
are the best. These are black and, being light weight and smooth, are more pliable and easier to handle 
than those of bone, mother of pearl, metal or other hard substances. 

Thread. Because of its firm, even, "cable laid " twist and perfectly round surface Corticelli Mercer- 
ized Cordonnet is admirably suited for tatting for the decoration of table linens, lingerie, handkerchiefs, 
bedroom linens, etc. Besides white it comes in ecru and linen colors to match materials used for curtains 
and scarfs, and in several delicate shades dyed fast colors for edgings for towels, luncheon sets and 
handkerchiefs which are now so popular. 

Some materials, however, such as infants' flannel skirts and silk caps, ladies' crepe de Chine waists, 
etc., call for a silk thread. For this work Corticelli Crochet and Knitting Silk is best suited and it may 
be had in cream, white and in many beautiful fast colors. 

Princess Pearl Crochet Cotton Size 5 may be used for Turkish towels where a soft and rather 
heavy edge is desired. A simple edging made of this material is also effective on huckabuck towels. 
It comes in white, cream and about twenty-five fast colors. 

These materials come in all sizes, and the skilled needleworker will have no difficulty in selecting 
the size of thread suited for the work in hand. To help the less experienced, however, we have included 
in many of the instructions the size of thread generally used for the different articles. 

More or less difficulty and inconvenience are always experienced in matching colors, the number of 
the color to be matched often being lost or mislaid. To avoid this we have issued Color Card No. 37 
showing the actual colors and sizes in all the different Corticelli and Princess Cottons. This card costs 
10 cents and may be obtained from your dealer or will be mailed direct.

Explanation of Stitches 

To fill the shuttle pass thread through the hole provided for this purpose and proceed to wind until 
the thread projects a little beyond the sides. The stitches are made with the left hand, the thread in 
the right hand being held "taut" and away from you so as not to tie a knot. Tatting in reality is quite 
simple and if the positions of the hands in the illustrations are carefully followed there will be no difficulty 
in making the stitches. 

Single or Half Stitch. The first thing to learn is 
the single or half stitch. Take shuttle in the right 
hand and the end of the thread between the thumb 
and forefinger of the left hand, placing the thread 
over the fingers as shown in Fig. 1, allowing thread 
enough for easy movement of the two fingers now 
under the loop. Bring it back between the thumb 
and forefinger, crossing the threads as shown. Pass 
the thread from the shuttle under the second and 
third finger and over little finger of your right hand, 
giving the shuttle the direction as shown in Fig. 1. Pj^ j 

Now pass the shuttle between the first and 
second fingers of the left hand to the back of the 
hand, bringing it out behind the loop, drawing the 
shuttle thread "taut," stopping with a quick move- 
ment while the left hand closes or draws the knot. 
(Fig. 2.) 

This is where the amateur's trouble arises as the 
beginner is apt to let the shuttle thread slacken, and 
in that case it ties a knot and will not slip. This 
Fig. 2 can be overcome if you will, after passing the shuttle 

through the loop, hold the shuttle thread away from 

you and "taut" but hold the left hand motionless. 
Double Stitch. Raise the third finger of the left 

hand to make the stitch which is the first half of the 

double stitch. The shuttle thread must be kept 

"taut" and not moved while using the left hand, as 

it is the left hand that completes the stitches, while 

the right hand or shuttle thread is the part which 

runs through the stitches to allow the ring to be 

drawn up. (Fig. 3.) 






Fig. 3 



The second half of the stitch is made by passing 
shuttle, as shown, over the thread and under the 
loop between the first and third fingers of the left 
hand, the right hand taking the shuttle from under 
the empty loop, the left hand closing the stitch the 
same as in the first half stitch, forming the double 
stitch. Always allow sufficient length of thread to 
permit the shuttle to pass through the first and 
third fingers without touching them. (Fig. 4.) 



Picot. After forming a double stitch the hand 
takes the same position as in Fig. 1. To make 
a picot take a long half stitch, say one fourth of an 
inch or more, commonly called a single stitch, 
separated by a double stitch. 

Picots are a series of single stitches and should be 
of uniform size. Fig. S shows 1 picot, 1 double 
stitch and 1 picot. 

Tatting with Two Shuttles. Two shuttles or 
shuttle and ball are used in tatting when the little 
rings are not to be connected at the bottom by a 





thread, when you wish to hide the passage of the 
silk to another group of knots, and when threads of 
two or more colors are used. 

Wind shuttle and do not cut from spool if work is 
to be all of one color. If in two colors then two 
shuttles are wound, using first one and then the 
other. The second shuttle thread is passed from 
thumb and forefinger over third finger of left hand, 
and, instead of forming a loop around the fingers, the 
thread is held with the fourth and little finger and 
the stitches are worked in the usual way. (Fig. 6.) 



Fig. 6 



Stitches Commonly Used 



These are the stitches most commonly used in 
tatting, grouped together. They should be 
thoroughly mastered by practice and a close study 
of the instructions in the foregoing pages. 

Single or Half Stitch {Group No. 7). A group of 
single stitches drawn up into rings. Place thread 
around fingers and work 10 single stitches. Take 
loop off fingers, hold stitches between thumb and 
forefinger, and draw shuttle thread up close to form 
a ring, leaving one fourth of an inch of thread, and 
repeat. 

Double Stitch {Group No. S). A group of 
double stitches drawn up into rings. 

Picots {Group No. 9). Leave about one fourth 
of an inch of thread between S double or complete 
stitches, draw up, and the picots project with the 
stitches. 

Joining of Rings {Group No. 10). The joining 
stitch connects the different parts of a design. 
With a crochet hook draw upper thread through 
picot of first ring and pass shuttle through it, 
holding shuttle thread "taut." 

Josephine Knot {Group, No. 11). Used in many of 
the old designs; made by tatting 5 double stitches 
and drawing up just about half. 

Dots {Group No. 12). Tat 5 double stitches and 
draw up almost to a ring.

Materials: For handkerchiefs or where 
a very small, fine edge is desired, use CMC 
Cordonnet Size 70 or 100. For edgings for 
collar and cuff sets, baby dresses, waists, 
lingerie or other wearing apparel, luncheon 
and bedroom sets, choose Size 40 or 50. 
For huck towel edgings select CMC Size 30, 
or Princess Pearl Size 5, if it is to be a narrow 
edge. Princess Pearl Crochet Cotton may 
also be used on Turkish towels. For curtains 
select CMC Size 30 or 40, in white, ecru or 
linen. For heavy linen crash for scarfs, etc., 
use CMC Size 3 or 5, in ecru or linen. 

For baby's flannel garments, silk bonnets, 
etc., Corticelli Crochet and Knitting Silk is 
very suitable, either in cream or white, and 
this silk is also used for trimmings on crSpe 
de Chine waists, silk lingerie, etc. 

Edging No. 13. The simplicity of this 
edging makes it very adaptable. A row or 
two of simple filet crochet across the top 
transforms it into a charming edge for dresser 
scarf and day pillows, towels, etc., or as an 
edging for Valenciennes insertion it makes a 
pretty waist trimming. It is also appro- 
priate for doily or centerpiece, or made of 
Corticelli Crochet and Knitting Silk it is a 
dainty edge for baby's petticoat or bonnet.

Edging No. 14 is suitable for centerpiece 
and doilies developed in C M C Cordonnet, 
in white or in shade No. 213 blue, and is 
equally pretty for collar and cuff sets, 
handkerchiefs or lingerie. It is pretty in 
either C M C or Princess Pearl Crochet 
Cotton for huck or Turkish towels; the 
latter material, while not so generally used, 
gives a nice soft edge that is very desirable, 
and it may be obtained either in white or 
in colors, blue or pink being the colors 
usually selected, while yellow, although a 
little out of the ordinary, is very attractive 
in a small edge for towels.

Collar No. 106 

(By Cynthia H. Lawrence) 

A pretty tatted edge and corner motifs appliqu^d to a piece of organdie will give distinction to 
any collar. Use Corticelli Mercerized Cordonnet Size 50. 

Instructions: Make a chain the desired length, or if you wish you can leave the spool and shuttle 
attached to continue the trim- 
ming. The first time across, ch. 
10 d. s., p., 10 d. s., repeating the 
p. at intervals of 10 d.s. through 
the strip. Fasten spool and 
shuttle thread together. Make 
a ring with 4 d. s. between p., 
holding the ch. with p. towards 
you, fasten the second p. of ring 
to the first p. in chain. Finish 
the ring, and close. Turn work, 
and ch. 10 d. s. Turn and make 
a clover leaf, fastening first ring 
of leaf at 2d p. to the last p. of 
preceding ring. The 2d p. of 
2d ring of leaf is fastened to the 
2d p. of long chain. Continue in 
this way, first a ring, then a 
clover leaf, next a ring, with a 
chain of 10 d. s. between each. 
The corner motifs are simply 

5 clover leaves, with a chain of 
10 d. S. between each leaf. Organdie Collar with Tatted Edge No. 106

Make a very narrow hem on the collar, and instead of sewing the trimming on the edge in the usual 
way, lay it on the outside, sewing it in place with very fine thread and as blindly as possible. It gives 
an altogether different effect, and is necessary here, as the picots have been omitted.

Silk Bag No. 124 



By Mrs. F. L. Smith 

The bag is ten inches high and eight Inches wide and is made of a good quality of heavy pongee 
silk. The decoration is of tatting worked in Corticelli Crochet and Knitting Silk in color to match the 
bag. A less expensive bag could be made of linen, with tatting in Corticelli Cordonnet Size 10. 

Measure the center of bag below the inch hem, and mark it with a knot of thread. Both sides 
of bag are alike in decoration. 

For center medallion make a 9 p. ring with 2 d. s. between p., then a 9 p. scallop with 2 d. s. between 
p. s. Continue with alternate ring and scallop until you have 8 rings and 8 scallops, join. 

Make a 7 p. ring with 2 d. s. between each picot, join it to the 5th p. of the scallop of the center 
medallion at the 4th p. of ring. Make 
an 8 p. ch. with 2 d. s. between each 
p., 7 p. ring,. then another chain, con- 
tinue until the center ring is surrounded 
by 8 points. 

Make a 7 p. ring and join to a point 
at the 4th p. of rings; then a 5 p. 
scallop with 2 d. s. between p., 4 more 
rings like the first, not joined together, 
and S scallops like the first. Make a 7 
p. ring and join it to the next point of 
center at the 4th p. of rings. Repeat, 
finishing medallion. Appliqu^ on bag. 

The sides and lower end of bag are 
trimmed with border of double tatting 
made with spool and shuttle. 

Make rings of 11 p. with 2 d. s. 
between p.'s. With spool and shuttle, 
make bars of 3 p. with 2 d. s. between, 
finish with a ring to make a clover leaf. 
A seven pointed star is placed at each 
of the lower corners of bag after the 
double tatting is sewed on. 

To make the stars: 1st, make a 9 
p. ring with 2 d. s. between p. Ch. with

As Artists requiTe the best brushes and pigments, so the Needleworker should insist upon buying the kind 
of silk which is everywhere recognized as the best. Corticelli has won 40 Highest Awards for superiority.
