Right-Handed Needle-Tatting Techniques

Ring To form a Ring while needle tatting have the 'tail' of the thread toward the eye of the needle when casting on double stitches.
Chain When making a Chain have the tail (which now has the ball of thread attached) facing away from the eye of the needle when casting on double stitches.
Self Closing Mock Ring Work the Self Closing Mock Ring the same as when working the CHAIN except... as you are pulling the thread through the chain insert the needle into the loop that is forming as the core thread slides in. This will make the Chain 'magically' turn into a ring, a Self Closing Mock Ring.
Ring with ball To make a Ring while using a ball of thread do it exactly the same as when doing the ring with no ball thread. The only difference is that the tail end now has the ball of thread attached to it.
