What a lovely pattern you passed on when you posted the Brainerd & Armstong tatting pages excerpt! I'm snail-mailing you my sample so you'll also be able to post a picture of the pattern as well (I don't have a scanner). The pattern is a little confusing at the very beginning. When I started I just had to take it on faith that I really wasn't supposed to reverse after that first chain. Without a photo, I was working blind. I'll get the sample in tomorrow's mail. I really love it. It's nice and wide, but with all those picots connected nothing is going to flop around.

The pattern is composed of incomplete circles (7 rings and 6 chains) separated by a single ring. The chain before and after the single ring are joined to one another at the base of the circle. There are 3 DS between each picot or join. In size 20 Cordonnet, the edging is 1 3/4" wide. Reverse work as usual except where indicated.Single R: 3 (- 3 x 5)
This completes the first two rings and chains of the second circle. The remaining rings and chains are worked as for the first circle.Any questions? You are welcome to email me.
