Mystery Doily Round 4

Completed Round 4 of the Mystery Doily.  I pressed the doily a bit before taking the photo so the rippling of Round 3 is not so visible. I think a bit of blocking and stiffening may solve that issue.


But, the ending of this round was not without a mistake, as you can see below.

I did not feel like opening up six tiny rings just to correct it.  Since there are only four double stitches in the ring to reach the picot, I can easily sew the picots together, when I sew in the thread ends.

Two more rounds to go.  I am really enjoying tatting this and seeing the end result.  I like that there are no free picots in the design, except for the decorative part in the final round.

  2. It looks fantastic! I am seriously impressed by how you've managed to make a pattern with solid areas around in the later rounds ^_^

  3. It's looking really good - I'm wondering how big it will be when it's finished! I think you made the right choice, when you decided to stick with white; it's a design which shows up best in one colour.

  8. This one came out very thick and takes on a different look, I like the holes in the center it leaves, than other doily's! What fun to look at. You did a great job, I to gravitate to the no picot look mostly, when I tat too!

  10. This is turning out really beautiful Jon. I like that it is different and much more "full" as a design (not so many empty spaces, or tiny ones) which looks like it means lots of tiny ring tatting! Look forward to seeing what comes next.
