I created this 25 page book out of a need that I saw from my beginner students. They were always requesting patterns that required only one shuttle work and how-to instructions that are clear and concise. So I have put together a collection of 17 patterns that use only one shuttle. It also includes detailed instructions with lots of close up pictures for every step. A must have book for the beginner or the well versed tatter that likes fresh new ideas.

The book has 25 pages of full color on 32 lb stock paper, comb bound, 8.5×11 size.
It costs $15 plus S&H of $2.75 First Class US postage. If you prefer a different shipping method or it is an international order, please contact me. Please allow at the most two weeks to fill your order and time for shipping.

One of the main features in the book is the half closed ring. By using the ring and half closed ring, many intricate designs can be made that are simple in structure. The half closed ring is used both as a decorative element or as a bridge between two rings, similar to a chain.

I was very interested in the material on your blog on 5th Jan 2010 on designing and was wondering if you would give me permission to use this material please. Of course I would acknowledge your website and authorship.
