They’re finally up – in the doily, anyway.  In the garden, snowdrops are blooming but the daffodil leaves are cautiously peeking above ground, probably hoping, as we are, the snow is over.

This round is finicky because each daffodil is tatted and joined to the previous round and the previous daffodils separately, meaning you will have at least 24 ends to sew in.  It’s worth it, I think.

For each daffodil, wind a little thread on a shuttle (I wound 15 times around a small Clover post shuttle).  Leave this attached to the ball.  I used a variegated yellow. 


Making your ring picots medium-sized, R: 1-1-1-1-1-1 (5 picots).

Create a mock picot with an untransferred half stitch. CH: 3+ around.

Continuing for a second round, CH: 5+ around.

Petal round

Using HBDS, CH: 6-6+ (to next space around circle) 6+ (to CH p on previous round) 6+ to next space around circle) 6+ (to next CH p on previous round) 6+ (to next space around circle) 7-7+ (to next CH sp around circle) {{6-6+ to next CH space around circle)) twice.  Tie, cut and sew in ends.

On subsequent daffodils, the CH joins to the previous round begin two spaces to the left of the daffodil before, and the CH with 14 stitches joins at its middle to the first petal picot of the previous daffodil.
