Decorative Tea light Lace

I originally found this pattern while placing random searches into Pinterest. It linked me to another blog:

The pattern is written very clear and precise and the end result is beautiful!

One thing I have challenged was the petal shape, it is undeniably pretty and delicate, but they do need molding into shape to produce the flower effect. The result is shown in the featured image above.

The image below however, shows my adaptation to the petal. Each petal here is ten DC’s  with a slips stitch before and after each one…

In other words, each petal is thicker and made more defined by using the slip stitch technique.

I am still up for a debate on which one I prefer though, so all opinions are appreciated!
