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

By paying close attention to the tension of my chains, I managed to get a motif that lies flat, unlike the one I described in this post. I do think that tension is an aspect of tatting that needs attention. If your tension differs from that of a designer, you can end up with something unsatisfactory. That's not serious on a tiny square like this one (3 cm square) but can be a major disappointment on a large piece if it cups or distorts.
