MP: Help Needed!
- Greetings and Happy Spring (soon) to all!
A tatter in my group has been working on the Motif Luncheon Set pattern given in Barbara Foster's Handy Hands newsletter Vol 18, #2 from Spring and Summer of 2010. Has anyone tried this pattern? My fellow tatter contacted me because he found a mistake and couldn't figure out where it was or how to fix it.
The pattern in on page 7 of the newsletter (and probably the original publication as well). Column 2 begins "Row of Rings and Chains." The directions for the second ring of the Clover Leaf read: 2nd ring. - 6 ds., join to last p. of last ring, 6 ds., p. set. by 6 ds., 6 ds. Close. RW." This is where we have hit a road block!
The ring should be: 6ds [+ to last p of prev ring] 6ds but then HOW MANY PICOTS separated by 6 double stitches does one make before creating the last picot which will serve as a join for the 3rd ring of the Clover Leaf?
Can everyone follow this?
If you have information that will help solve this riddle, please contact me on or off list
