SUMMARY- The tatting section is five pages. You get a pictorial demonstrating the making of a ring, three(3)traditional and simple edgings, and a doily pattern. The basic instructions are fairly good for their brevity, and illustrates one of the faster methods of tatting. I don't believe it can replace having a teacher show the basics, though.
