Rounds 4 and 5 of Renulek's Spring 2014 Napkin done…

Here are a few pictures of Rounds 4 and 5 for Renulek's Spring 2014 Napkin (the post giving the pattern for the first round is here, and you just look in the posts after it for the succeeding rounds).

After the bright colours of Round 3, I pulled back and used cooler colours for Round 4, and cooler yet for Round 5. Here is Round 4 complete:

In Round 5, it easy to make a mistake and omit a ring or chain. See where I tatted three blue rings (the group at left) when I should have tatted four (like the group at right)?

Thanks to this blog post by Fox, I knew that this would lead to disaster in Round 8. So I untatted back to those rings and redid them, and went very carefully for the rest of the round.

  1. Such pretty colors! Sounds like Fox did us all a favor. I did the same thing you did -- missed a ring in the set of four, and retro-tatted back to fix it. I checked and counted after every set after that! Yours is looking very nice with such smooth even stitches!

  2. Beautiful mat, looking really beautiful with those colours and combinations

  3. Great use of colour! I'm glad you spotted the mistake so you could redo it pronto.
