When tatting, you start by winding the ball and shuttle threads together. You will then begin to make double stitches. The first half of the stitch is a loop, and the second half of the stitch is a knot or half-hitch. The first half of the stitch is referred to as the Core Thread, while the second half of the stitch is known as the Picot Stitch. Picots add a delicate decorative effect to tatting by making small loops between two double stitches.
