Can you tell?

Can you tell the difference between these two motifs? 

If you can't then I've wasted a lot of time drawing up a new technique!!!!  Well I think it's new and I think I'd rather call it a cheat than a technique. 

I'll wait for comments and then explain all tomorrow!!!

  1. You've climbed out of the central ring by doing an 'uneven' split ring?

  2. It looks like there could be a sifference with the transition from the center to the outside, but I could alao just be looking too hard. :)

  4. the second one looks much nicer without the uneven red/green split ring in the second layer, or the red/green split ring in the layer of all red rings.

  5. First is a mock picot to split ring to climb out. Does it have something to do with that split ring joining the second color ( do not see color change in mock picot)

  6. It's not that obvious, but the second one has a perfect 'star' shape in the green thread. which is quite pleasing.. I look forward to seeing how you managed to do it!

  7. I agree with all the above, the climb out split ring is all green where it should be.

  8. I can see a difference. I like the bottom one better. It looks a bit neater.

  13. You've found a way to prevent the change of colour on the split chain??? I did it the other day by leaving the tail of the appropriate colour at start of 1st ring,... Then when I got back to the split chain - I used the tail to wrap the core + Sh#1 thread... Then hid the remnant of the tail. No colour in the wrong place...
    Was that how yer did it????

  14. I agree about the 1st - a mock picot to climb out. Leaves us with an uneven SR - not appealing if working with 2 colours.

    2nd is perfect ! My take it that you did something like a split chain in the SR round - the bottom left (centre) green & maroon ring is Not a True ring or even an SR in the 'normal' sense. It has a partial split chain type of element in the green part. Or may be it is some kind of new SSSR ?!

    And the next 2 maroon rings on the outer rounds follow (by the telltale tiny little green 'blips'.

    However, I still cannot figure out how you have gone about it. Especially not without shuttles in my hand.

    Very very excited & eager to see your new technique, Jane !
    Thoroughly enjoyed this puzzle, even if I couldn't solve it completely.
