What advice would you give someone starting this project? I couldn't understand the part in the 2nd ring where you join to "the longest picot" but I finally figured out that she is having you make a triple picot and you are joining to the longest picot, which is in the same ring. My other advice would be about picot size. She uses # of dashes to indicate picot size and gives an approximate measurement, which would be perfect but I used a different size thread, so basically: - means a very small picot, --- is a normal picot, and ------ is a very long picot (you'll have to guesstimate the size by trial and error, depending on thread size). Hope that helps anyone else making this!
