I wound my shuttles and was trying to figure out the number of stitches and where it went. I had to look carefully as the numbers can be anywhere on the diagram on page 104 of Jan Stawasz 1st book.
While tatting, I suddenly realized that this pattern is to be tatted in 2 rounds and when I was about to finish this round 1, I also discovered a mistake. I had joined to a wrong picot. If I abandon this, I would have wound all that thread for nothing - 2 shuttles full.
Zen me ban?
