I thought I'd show you the bottoms of the little beaded bags I'm making. The spokes pattern makes increasing very easy, I just increase in the stitch before the contrast bead, which means all the counting is done while threading the beads. The one on the right has a final round of 72 beads, whereas the other 2 are 54 beads.
The tat it and see is given in very small bites, but one needs, nevertheless, to pay attention! I looked at the wrong part of the diagram and thought I'd made a mistake. The split ring wasn't easy to open, I don't know why some open easily and some don't, but there you go, I spent a long time untatting. And then realised that I hadn't made a mistake at all! I think of the headline I saw on a blog recently that said, 'I am a plonker'.
