An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

These are motifs 53 to 57. Motif 54 involves self closing mock rings, but the others all have double picots. I had to do some practising and experimenting to learn the technique and find the best picot lengths. The picots with thrown off rings require a different picot gauge for each side, for instance. My top tip is to adjust the inner picot before doing the second half of the join. It's less likely to get distorted that way.
