My next challenge is to learn the Lark's head picot join - a bit of a mouthful that. I used Krystledawn's tutorial. My first attempt was spot on. Aha. My second was not. If you look carefully at the second ring from the left, you can see that I gave up and fudged it. I got the hang of it for a while, then produced some joins that looked right but didn't slide. No, that won't do. I think I have it now.
Krystledawn created a tutorial that is clear and easy to follow. I especially like the summary of the technique at the end, so that once you more-or-less get the hang of it, you don't have to keep going through the whole tutorial. Thanks, Krystledawn.
The LHPJ is very neat, keeping the appearance of the double stitch. Is the idea to use it as a join all the time? Or should it be used in specific circumstances? It must be slower than a 'normal' join, since it needs more movements. What do you think?
This is number 8 for my 25 Motif Challenge.
