About Me

Hi. I live in Canberra, Australia, and started tatting early in 2009. Consequently, I've now caught the 'tatting bug' and hope to be infected for a long while.

Prince the Parrot

What a joy this cheeky fellow was to tat. And such a perfect use of those left-over threads that we all find on our shuttles.

This little fellow took several months to tat, because he was my 'stand-in chap' for when I didn't have a larger project to work on. I guess he got worked on each time I needed to free a new shuttle up from left-over threads.

Prince Parrot was designed by Mary Parrott and was tatted in many shades of Altin Basak size 50.


  1. Prince DOES look cheeky! Thank you for the link.

  2. Prince looks very handsome! You can see his personality well manners & all. Thanks for sharing your lovely pet with all of us.

  3. I've tatted this little one up a couple of times. It is a great pattern. He looks good!

  4. What a cheeky parrot, I have started one but had to put it away as I didin't understand part of the pattern.

  5. This pattern is the reason I've never tackled 'doing' a parrot. It's perfect as it is and I can't see that I could ever improve on it. Just love your colours too.

  6. so cute ! thanks for the link
