I did not read the pattern carefully and miscounted the sequence in the number of rings. In fact, I just took a glimpse of the picture and thought I had it, after all the sequence of construction is the same for all round.
Never mind, it is another good reason to quickly use up this thread which I am not particularly fond of. So, I don't feel so bad snipping the round off (if you understand my quirky reasoning).
Added later (after I slept on it and read all the comments that came during the night)
Yeah, I know I am crazy sometimes ... oh wait ... I can be stark raving mad to make my tatting perfect, but
I decided to start over from Round 1. Hopefully, I can fix the ruffling in Round 2 because I think the mess started from there. Further, Maureen had left a good point in her comment that she wrote early this morning.
So I am leaving the white version as it is and use it as a 'what-not-to-do' reference for this second try.
