I had to use a paper clip to hold the picots after weaving. I think my picots were a little too short so the weaving was a little tricky. Ensure that the picots are not twisted before joining. This will make the weaving flat and pretty.
After blocking, the weaving looked fine but the ends of the bookmark had picots which were too large. I got a little carried away. What do you think? I would have preferred the end chains to be shorter with normal sized picots.
