Still at Round 3 of the Mystery Doily. Progress is rather slow, which is expected as the round increases.
This round is showing some ruffling even though I have reduced the stitch count somewhat and also made smaller joining picots. But, I pressed it a bit and the ruffling disappears (below).
I am getting comfortable tatting this doily once I get the rhythm of the rings and chains. Just a point to note for anyone working on this. Make sure to pay attention to the number of rings in each round, because the number is different for different rounds, as well as where the joins are made.
Even at this point, I can see that it is going to be a lovely piece. I am glad I decided to stick to one solid colour for this.
