Again, the doodad adds a little weight and does help the snowflake hold its shape a little better. Still, it's pretty on its own!
Ready for another pattern?
size 20 Lizbeth, Christmas Delight #116
Flower component #H20-9117FY from Fire Mountain Gems
Wind thread on two shuttles CTM.
*Ring: 4 -- 4 + 4 -- 4 (if not using a doodad, use a picot instead of a join); reverse work
Chain 8; switch shuttles
Ring 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2 (that's 8 picots separated by 2 ds); switch shuttles
Chain 8; reverse work
Repeat from *
When you get to the last center ring, remember to that the last picot should be a join to the first picot of the first ring.
If you find any problems with the pattern, please let me know so that I can correct it.
