Hat Brim (Tatting) Finished!

August 12, 2011 4:20 pm

I know it looks pretty much identical to the last picture I posted about this project, but now it’s actually done.  That’s the problem with a project this dense.  It took a TON of tatting to feel like I was making any progress on it.  That was fine when it was the tatting I worked on during class but when I decided to just finish it up I was thinking I only had 2 or 3 hours of tatting left on it.  Turned out to be about 3 times more than that, but it’s done now and I like the way it came out.

I strung all the rings of the first row on to a thread so I could keep them bunched up.  That made it easier to move around, but that’s also what made it feel like I was going so slow.  I only had 6 inches left, but those were bunched up inches so they were really a couple feet.  The whole thing was maybe 2 feet bunched up, and about 6 or so in reality.

The next step is a bit of light sewing to attach it to the hat.  Unfortunately, the hat is in San Diego and I’m in Seattle for another two weeks so it’ll be a while before I get to that.  I’m excited to have the tatting for the project done though.  It’s been at least 6 months since I started it.
