The picot is too small. I had trouble 'gauge-ing' the size of each picot. Maybe I need to come up with that gauge thing soon.
Yikes! Forgot to make up the joint!
Finally did the joint, only to find that I joined to the wrong ring.. :-)
Managed this small band. I am not sure if I did the correct sequence of rings, or whether i did the join properly or whether my double stitches are too loose. The rings looked un-uniformed, the picots varied in size.. Let's hear what the more tatting expert say...
