ok, up to now...
I forgot to tell you the number of ds that I'm tatting in chains. All chains are the same in the 2-2-2-2 ring version of the doily, so one could reasonably think it is the same here. In this case rings are 1/3 bigger and so it should be for chains.
Chains are formed by two parts, the inner part is 6-6 ds, with a vsp. Then the pattern asks to reverse work and the outer part of the chain is 7-6-7, with joins and normal lenght picots. Also, picots coming from rings and supposed to be joined to a chain, should be normal picots. That worked for me, maybe it could be useful to you too.
I still don't understand well which is the right size for picots in each rings' cluster. But I'm only at the second round!
Thread is DMC cordonnet special, ecrù, size 40.
