Tatting in Tremonton

Special to the Leader

Tatting is all about tying hundreds and thousands of little double half-hitches.
The half-hitch is the basic stitch in tatting, but can be varied with Josephine knots, while picots, joins and chains are all necessary variations on the basic stitch.  Flipping the half-hitch from the shuttle thread to the looped thread is the trick of tatting and most people who try the art never master that technique.
But for a group of tatters who meet at the Tremonton Senior Center each Tuesday, the trick of flipping the half-hitch is almost natural. Most of them do it without really thinking. It enables them to concentrate on the many patterns of forming rings, chains and joining. They end up with delicate lace work.
