Left handed Tatting a Simple Motif

This simple motif is good for beginners to practice double stitches, picots, rings, chains, and the join.

The right handed version has also been uploaded to my YouTube channel. Actually, the left handed video is simply my right handed original flipped mirror image using an app! Works great...except silly me, I forgot that "counterclockwise" would become "clockwise" in the lefty version. Oh well!

I used "Elisa" size 5 thread for the demo. I love the size and the thread is perfect! Oh, of course, I hand dyed it :-)

I am sure you are a true blessing for many left handed tatters!! :)
I taught my niece who is left handed and it worked well, but she no longer tats.

Thank you, I do hope it helps some. With modern technology now it's easy to mirror image a video.
