All rings 3 ds between picots or joins.

All chains begin and end with 5 ds.

All picots on the chains are separated by 1 ds.

The original design would have joined many of the motifs (points) to the long line of the header edging. However, with careful study and a modification this could be tatted in one pass. Let's consider the possibility. Two rings of the header join to the point. Let's change that to three rings. Now we could tat ring 1 of the header and the chain, rw and instead of second header ring, chain (CH) 3 and join to the previous ring, CH 3 rw. Next make the large ring with 21 picots clr rw and tat the edging around as shown. The last chain would join to ring one of the header. End chain where the point started. RW and CH 3 picot 3 and secure chain to chain of header. Continue header joining the next ring to the point. Place 1-2 header rings between each repeat.
