SUMMARY- Here's a book of patterns culled from the pages of "WORKBASKET". It covers a lot of disciplines. For the tatting patterns, you get "WORKBASKET"'s written notation, no diagrams, and not broken down. By the 1950's, "WORKBASKET" was nearly the only needlework magazine still publishing tatting patterns. This booklet came out a year before the more condensed version published by Modern Handicraft.
