What an ordeal! Hours and hours in this piece. I really had a rough time with it.
If I were to change it up, I would simplify the last two rows to emphasize the beauty of the inner wheel, rather than drawing the eye to the outer edge. Just a thought.
There are so many errors in this piece, including how I attached the centre bit, weaving it with gold thread to the outer piece. I had messed up the picot count throughout the joining row!
So, I am done. It looks pretty, but is one botched tat! Into the drawer it goes!
Glad I gave it a go, but this is definitely not a pattern I enjoyed one bit. Too fussy for me, unless I modified all the chain rows. I am NOT about to tackle that. : )
