NETTING, Rita F. Bartholomew.
There are two methods used to tie the basic netting knot. Either method
can be used with heavier materials, but the method use to tie the knot in
netting with string/twine is not as easy to use with the finer crochet or
tatting threads. This book only teaches the method that works well with
the finer threads used in making laces.
Instructions for Diamond Mesh Netting, Square Mesh Netting and Circular
Square Mesh Netting usually forms the background for net embroidery. This
type of netting is also seen in volleyball, and tennis nets.
Circular Netting is used to create doilies, shawls, and lace edgings. This
type of netting is used with both cloth centers and net centers. It is also used
to make basketball nets, and shopping bags.
Also covered is how to attach netting to cloth.
Full instructions and 23 patterns are included in this self-published
book. 60 pages, 8.5" x 11" spiral bound. $20.00
TIME: The Technique and Art of Knotted Netting, Jacqueline Davidson.
Reflecting a devotion to this universal and timeless fabric and its infiltration
into every aspect of civilization from fishing to sports to fine lace and creative expression.
This book is the culmination of years of research. It covers the entire history of nets from prehistoric sites to fiber art by contemporary artists.
Knotted netting was used to produce utilitarian nets for fishing, trapping, and carrying. The same technique was adapted for making lace of several styles and might, in fact, have been the earliest type of lace.
The book describes many items of knotted netting, and includes over forty black-and-white photographs. The tools used for all kinds of nets are also discussed and pictured. References and an Index are included.
The author, Jacqueline Davidson, was introduced to the technique of knotted netting while studying weaving at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine. She later taught knotted netting in other textile classes and published several magazine articles. She lives in Deer Isle with her husband Darwin, a commercial photographer.

TO HOLD YOUR HAIR AND OTHER THINGS, Rita Bartholomew.
There are two ways to tie the basic netting knot. This book teaches only
the method that works well with the finer threads used in making lace; what Rita
calls the Lacemaker Knot.
After learning the basic knot, the easiest way to practice it is by creating
squares, rectangles, and circles with diamond-shape meshes, as described in the
chapter, DIAMOND MESH NETTING. CIRCULAR NETTING is used to create circles,
squares and rectangles from the inside out - the center being formed
first. The hair covering and bag patterns in this book use these two types
Also covers attaching beads to netting.
