Anita Barry sent in this picture of a piece of lace in her collection:
and to analyse the tatting technique, she got in close:
at the microscope level, she discovered that the rings seemed to be tatted using double stitches while the chains seemed to be a mixture of DS and JK.
Still to puzzle out:
Why so loose? Could the tatter be using a Cro-Tat type of tool? A large needle?
