Tips for Renulek's round 9

 Renulek's round 9 more tips
 Start with ring, and hold doily between you and ring like above.

Turn with doily to side like this above to start your chain.  I add a shoelace trick to get the lower chain to lie flat (optional)

Make chain and attach like directions and picture above, still holding doily to side to side finnish top chain and attach.
Then turn doily like below so top of chain is closest to you.

Start last part or chain holding this way.

Make hole at neck between ring and chain.

Pull thread through fix it, and position hands for your chain.


Now flip doily toward you.
                                           

Make the long chain attach to previous round. and back up to start the next repeat.
I place the safety pin in to mark how far I go in a day, it makes me feel good to see my own progress. 


I give a little tug on the ring like pictured when I finish a couple of repeats.

  1. Interesting. Still a round & half away from this round, so will refer back when I get to it. Thanks for sharing the step-by-step :-)
    I have been using SLT for rounds 6 & 7 "generously" & "copiously" but must say that this is a necessary evil - definitely not among my favorite techniques ;-P

    1. Come to think of it, I wonder whether reverse stitch would be a good way to handle the chains here ? Hmm... will figure out when I reach that part. I'm still not in my right mind this early, without a cuppa ;-P

  2. I the reverse stitch and it did not work but when you get to this round you will see why.

  3. Thanks for the tips! I am ready to start, but still trying to decide if I should add the variegated thread color here, or wait until the last round. I can't decide!

  4. If you used a variegated color, I would place it in the tiny ring and then again at the end to bring it all together because I don't think there will be to many more rounds left, but who knows :) ???

  5. I thought that round looked a bit tricky, so I'm sure those that follow will be glad of your tips.

    1. Yea, I was hoping it might be still interesting if you are not making the doily

  7. They are very tiny too, but the only tip is to keep turning the doily:)
