Sometimes I can be like a dog with a bone. Sometimes I just let things go. This Daffodil Doily had me stumped, and I just couldn't let it go. My friend Denise and I have talked about the pattern several times on the phone. She just started her doily, so she hadn't gotten to the final round to discover the "problem" that I had.
I did as some of my wonderful tatting friends suggested, and sent an e-mail to American School of Needlework. I couldn't find a tatting site for Janette Baker. I'll let you know what their response is.
That just wasn't enough, though. I pored over the picture and the diagram, and I finally saw what happened! On Round 3, all of the chains have 5 picots, except one which has 4. If you tat one chain with only 4 picots, then the edging without Ring A fits perfectly!
Now I think I'll look for some yellow thread, and maybe a touch of green to make a true Daffodil Doily!
