Boutonniere

Pattern is called "Boutonniere", it's the number 2630-B, at page 10 of "Tatting" Clark’s O.N.T. Book #183 (1942).

Thread is Lizbeth size 80, colour number 154.
I used two shuttles.
I had troubles at the second layer, probably because my tatting is very tight. Then I solved extending all chains in second and third layers, from 8ds to 12. Another thing that I did  - and that wasn't clear to me at first - is that I joined all center rings in those layers to their preceding ring.


In the next, I copied the original pattern.
