part V - threads too short to be used
"Threads too short to be used".
A very organized Lady! So, after the cut and tie part for my doily, and laughing at myself for my little bunch of cut threads, I resolved it's time to give it to the birds outside...
Third round of the doily:
It will connect the central flower to the 8 round yellow motifs.
Start from the left in the picture:
Ring1: 6ds, join to the middle long picot of a petal, 6ds, close.
Ring2: 6ds, join to next long picot of the petal, 6ds, close.
Chain2: 12ds, join the round motif (look at picture), 4ds.
Ring3: 6ds, join to next long picot of the petal, 6ds, close.
Chain3: 10ds, join next picot of the yellow motif, 4ds.
Ring4: 6ds, join to next long picot of the petal, 4ds, picot, 2ds, close.
Ring5: 2ds, join to Ring4, 10ds, join to two petals taking 2long picots from the next petal and 2 long picots from current petal; 10ds, picot, 2ds, close.
Ring6: 2ds, join to previous Ring5, 4ds, join next long picot of the second petal, 6ds, close.
Pattern continues mirroring the other side: Chain3 mirrored, Ring3, Chain2 mirrored, Ring2, Chain1, Ring1. That is repeated all around petals.
Don't cut the thread at the end of this round, because it will be used to climb up to the last row.
