I’ve been a tatting enthusiast for over twenty years, and actually tatting regularly for over fifteen years. For a long time in the early days I believed the myth that you could’t un-tat (retro-tat) a ring. It’s quite lucky I found the online tatting world, and was able to learn this invaluable skill. I often get distracted while tatting, and will make the ring the wrong size, like I did tonight, realising as I close the ring that I have repeated the peak ring.
I also wanted to show any new tatters that mistakes are part of learning, and knowing/learning how to fix mistakes is a step towards mastery. I wonder if you have triumphed over something you believed was too difficult in your crafting?
Until next time, happy retro-tatting.
