I finally found some free antique (expired copyright) books from an online library.
This one was from DMC the thread is just a ball of size 10 that I had lying around. Larger thread does make learning easier. I still can’t believe that tatting is so addictive =P
Now if only I can find the site where I downloaded the book from.
And here is the almost finished product. The only thing I really need to finish this, is to sew the ends. I guess that can wait until I’m ready to learn the technique & find a small enough needle. But it’ll do for now, maybe until I want to put it up on the Christmas tree.

Lots of good books on tatting!
