Tatting with longer picots
...or so I thought! I really thought that using a picot gauge two sizes larger would make a huge difference. Apparently that's not quite true! The top snowflake is the one with the "larger" picots. I don't think they really look that much different. However, they do feel a lot different. The top one is softer and took a little more time to get in to shape.
Now, it's decision time. Should I try this in a smaller thread, or try a different pattern? I think size 20 thread makes this too large to use as a snowflake, but it makes a great mini doily. I think it's time to dig through my stash!
