  2. Ah hah!
    I see that I did the same thing as you did at that top picot...it seems to twist around and I could NOT figure out how to make it and the following chain flat. Finally, I twisted that little closed ring bit as much as I could to give the top the look of being tatted without a twisted chain... Know what I mean?

    Your leaf is beautiful and your pattern is excellent and ... TOO LATE FOR ME! It is so helpful - I should have tatted my motif much slower!

  6. Thank you Judy!!

    Night, yes, according to the pattern the ds do face inwards. I was also a little puzzled at first.

    And to answer Fox, I later pulled the picot inside out and got the ds to face inwards too. Perhaps I am doing it wrong. Anyone else has any ideas?

    Hi Diane,
    What about mint green or it need not be green at all, gold?
