  • The Remaining Letters* in the Alphabet Series:
    Letters O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z.

    *Please Note: Since I've been a little short on tatting time, I put the remaining letters out "untested". That means that from the letter "O" to the letter "Z," I haven't had a chance to tat them myself to see if the proportions are right or that they sit quite right. But, rather than hold up the rest of the alphabet, I put scans of my hand drawn patterns out for you to work from. So there are no tatted examples provided on the remaining letters at this point - just the chart/diagram to work from.

  • See examples from my personal collection of Ocean Jasper stone shuttles and thread keepers that are cut and polished stone slabs.

Previous letters of the alphabet are available with all of the other types: edgings, motifs, etc. For all patterns available, please see the Pattern Library.
