I deleted my other comment since I couldn't figure out how to edit the darn thing.  I made a bid mistake with the books  I was comparing sorry.

I do love the Julia E. Sanders book for patterns. The layout is weird but the patterns are beautiful.

kcabrera74 has 90 tatting videos.  She has an excellent array of skills for new tatters.

This is the linkto her channel.  For newbies to tatting, start at lesson 1.  I like that she has a comprehensive set of videos that work through all kinds of tatting skills.

Can you find for us the urls of the most basic and helpful kcabrera videos and post them here?

Well, actually, with youtube, the best book is videos.  Tatting is actually made with the hands, not the shuttle.  The shuttle is simply a vehicle to have enough thread to do something useful, or else you could only tat with a thread as long as your arm.  Since it is the motions that are most important, I would strongly suggest videos.  Just search for tatting and you will see a lot of them.  The videos by kcabrera are the most complete set of instructions available on youtube.
