This is my third tatting doily. I have used thread size 10, and 2 shuttles most of the time to do it. Of course it got lot of time to finish it; it is so big doily. This doily is from the book "Tatted treasures" for Jan Stawasz .

This motif is more complicated interlock motif because it is interlock rings, and also interlock chains. The final ring join has little trick to do it. I have made it using one shuttle, and thread size 10.
Here is its picture.

Interlock tatting chain,
Some days ago I have seen an interlock motif, and tried to figure out how to make this interlock chain.
you will need 2 shuttles out of ball with two different colors.
you start by doing a basic motif with just rings, and chain (mine is ring 3-3-3-3 , ch is 2-2-2-2) You make any numbers of rings, and chains, then close the motif.
Second round, you start to make rings , and interlock chains. you can make any numbers.
The only trick doing an interlock chain is to keep one of your shuttle, and its ball in front of your work, when you start to use your second color.
Here is the motif, and step by step pictures, I have made for you to see the stages of making an interlock chain.

This is my tatting butterfly. I have made it using thread size 40, and one shuttle out of ball. It is not big deal butterfly-in my opinion. Just motifs join with the center of the butterfly which is simpler than the motifs. I think a beginner can do this pattern. It is a charted pattern.
Here its picture
We can add sequins, and beads to sewing it , and in the same time will add a beautiful touch in it.

Here is my tatting collar. I have made this one using Egyptian cotton size 40, and two shuttles in some stages, and one shuttle in another stages. This is a charted pattern.
I want to say something about this collar, "I LOVE IT". Usually I don't admire what I am doing , just like it, and try to learn something new, but this one I really really enjoyed doing it, love it during making it, love it after I finished it, still in love with it lolol.
Here is its pictures, and stages of making it.
Flat picture for it
First stage ,
I have made this stage using two shuttles. In this stage I have defined the suitable length of the collar by doing enough- for me- units.
It is the inner edge, and it is been done in two parts.
Part 1( I have made it using one shuttle out of ball)
Close look at the outer edge
Hope you love it too.

I have made this doily using thread size 20, and one shuttle out of ball in first stage. In second stage I have used two shuttles. This stage was really tricky- for me- As I have made each flower with its leaves one by one, and joined that flowers with first stage. The last stage of doing it was the edge with one shuttle out of ball again. the edge was two rounds. The first one was wide, and make the doily ruffled!!! The second round makes it just nice edge as it narrowed that ruffles.It is middle size doily -about 43 cm across.
Here are its pictures (the only mistake I did when I get its final picture is ,I got it AFTER I wash it) I didn't block it well so its final picture was not good as it is in a real)
Here is the second stage of doing the flowers with their leaves.
Happy tatting for you all.

I have made this motif using thread size 40, and one shuttle out of ball when I did the flower, and two shuttles when I did the edge. I LOVED working with fine thread more. It is very easy, and comfortable. They always said that beginner should use bigger thread to learn, I agree with them , but want to add that you need bigger thread to "SEE" what you are learning NOT because it is easier to deal with bigger thread, and bigger needle or hook.
From my little experience, and through my learning I have used thread size 10, 20, 30, 40, and believe me the more I go through finer thread the easier I tat. It happened the same with me when I crocheted, and even knitted . So when I use finer crochet hook, and very finest thread like thread size 100 it was easier for me.
so what is the easier aspects of working with fine thread, and fine hook or needle??!!!
First , it is so so light to carry that fine hook or needle, and also that fine thread.
Second , it will give you better results specially with tatting, and crochet.
Third , it will be easier to mange that fine thread , and it will be easier to finish your stitch.
Forth, you will get so so nice delicate , and lacy work so you will LOVE the results more.
Now here are the picture of my new motif,
