SUMMARY- Illustrations for their tatting lesson are spare. The patterns are interesting - especially the padded tatting, which isn't all that common. Patterns are in written notation and broken down into rounds. There's the occasional color photograph scattered throughout the book, but none in the tatting chapter. For patterns, you get: 1. Wild Rose Edging, 2. Star Flower Edging, 3. Medieval Rose Window Doily, 4. Four-Loop Square with Corner Motif, 5. Daisy Doily, and 6. Floral Motif(padded tatting).
