#23 Motif Challenge
Another new tatting technique learned! This one concerns adding a thrown-off ring from a chain mimicking a picot. For the longest while I could not figure out what I was supposed to do and started (twice) using a mock picot, though I knew from the photo that this was ENTIRELY WRONG!
Ends up your are supposed to just leave a bit of thread at both ends of the ring! So simple and yet it so eluded me.
There are wonderful patterns - all in diagram form - in this book, and very good photographs of all of them, which is most helpful.
