Tatted collars

Tatting doesn't seem to be as popular now as it once was, but it is fun and easy to do and doesn't take much space to do or to store, so it is ideal to take on journeys.

Unlike knitting and crochet, you don't need to make a tension square, the thickness of the thread determines the size of the finished piece, the shuttles only come in one size.

Here are some pictures of a couple of tatted collars I have made.  They are the same design, just different colours.

Here is a peach coloured collar...I couldn't fit it all on the scanner!


  1. Thank you, Sahithi. I will wear one, no point in making them and then keeping them in a drawer...
