Pattern No. 4:
Top photo size 80, DMC #59 - AND - bottom photo size 20, Lizbeth color #164. Needed to adjust the picot size for the size 20 fiber - or the edge ripples, wouldn't lay flat [or maybe it was my tatting?]. I needed to make picot smaller - the picot/join between the two rings. When I used the size 80, the picot seemed ok, I used same size picot for the rings and chains and joins - pretty!
Pattern No. 24
Size 20, Lizbeth Fiber, color #164. For this to lay flat, without cupping, I made the picots 1/4" on the ends of the acorn caps AND in between the 4-rings. Otherwise, the project wouldn't lay flat [for me].
