Juliana round 4

Round four was a NIGHTMARE. I had to do a lot of studying before I started this round.

Can you see how the chains twist and turn? This meant a lot of switching of shuttles and ‘do not reversing’ of work too. I did give it a quick glance at the iron but didn’t pin it out or anything. Hoping the next round will help me out with that!!

I’m trying to draw the pattern up as I progress but this is becoming almost as hard as the ‘diagnosis’ of how it’s done! I think I’ll soon have to abandon the middle part and just ‘do’ the rounds as ‘rows’ - if you understand me!!! I’ve already stopped putting picots on the drawings and instead am putting numbers in red text. 

I got quite giddy after a while doing round four - but I’m glad I persisted.  Kudos to BC3 for sticking by my side!!!

Oh my goodness. It looks amazing, but I can see it's not an easy tat. Kudos to you and BC3.

OUch! My brain hurts just from looking at it! It must have taken hours to figure out all the twists and turns... mental gymnastics for BC3!

Awesome! I love it when you use the red ink. It helps tremendously.

Pretty! It's really hard getting changes like that the same, but I'm sure you really know that already? I can imagine the frustration in doing so. Makes my brain hurt too as Diane said. Wow!

oh wow! I can see how that can look a bit intimidating, but you sure make it look good. Can't wait to see how it all comes together. Pat yourself on the back. I am sure your improved pattern will be much easier to read and tat than the original.

Looks like you are doing awesome!!! :)

I can see how it all makes sense AFTER you have figured it out and tatted it, but the original pattern must be horribly confusing. Looks great, but it must have been very frustrating to work out. Still....if any of us can do it, you and BC3 can!
