I've been trying to do a snowflake pattern by Laura B. and so far mine looks nothing like hers! I tried making it several times then went on to something else. Laura encouraged me to try again and this is what I made. The first pic in blue is using size 10 thread. Not good. I thought that maybe a smaller thread would work so I went down to size 20. When I got to the next to the last ring and chain I saw it wasn't going to lay flat even with the smaller thread so I left off the last ring and chain.
The bottom pic is the snowflake after adding second row to it. I'm waiting for advice from Laura before continuing on.
