Tatted scarf wip

I have started to tat a lace scarf... it is from the Japanese book by Teiko Fujito called Tatted Fashion........Illustration 52.... pattern page 92...this is part of the first panel and I think it will take me quite some time to finish it....I want it to be about 24 inches long....hope that you like it

Before reading your post (just glancing at the photo in another tatter's blog list) I presumed you must be needle tatting your scarf.
Imagine my surprise to see your shuttle in the larger photo!

Color me impressed! Your first panel is bee-yoo-ti-ful. I don't know if I would have the "stick-to-it-tiveness" to complete such a large project, though the idea of wearing a tatted scarf is compelling.

Bravo! Bellissima!

Hi Isdihara,
Thank you for your very nice comments......a project like this takes a long time so I tat smaller things in between taking time out to carry on with tatting the lace scarf .
Yes I am a shuttle tatter
