First of all, I found the way the second round was written to be incomprehensible! I had a couple of goes and then decided to ignore the instructions and re-write my own. I also found the chains which join to the first round were too short and I had to add a few stitches to make it fit. This is a problem I often find with older patterns: their tension was much looser, especially in chains. I like tight and neatly-curving chains but in old patterns they were often so loose they could be straight or nearly like spaghetti! These weren't so bad but obviously looser than mine because I couldn't reach with the stated number of stitches.
And for once, I didn't forget to add a magic loop at the beginning!
(which is the fine bit of black thread you can see in the photo)
I like the shape of the onion rings on the outside. There are 14 repeats so I don't think I'll have time to finish this today!
