Compare this daisy with a classical rosette pattern. Here, too, the chains are tatted around and join in the same place each row. Chain lengthens on the succeeding rows. Tension is important on these chains. Too much tension will make the motif "cup" or "ruffle." Too little tension will allow too much negative space to show.
