One of the first books that I bought when I first started tatting (way back in the 1990s!) was Tatting Patterns and Designs by Gun Blomqvist and Elwy Persson. Over the years, I have tatted almost all of the doilies in that book. Some of the doilies have become thin and yellow with time, but I think it adds a lot of character to them. These are some of my favorites.
