Split chain problem
The tangled mess in the photo is an attempt to do a split chain of "Victorian Sets" (1st half of a double stitch repeated a # of times, followed by the 2nd half repeated a # of times, completing one set).
This is not a tutorial. I haven't a clue how it could be done in a split chain, even though I can make a normal split chain.
I am working the split chain in the red thread from left to right. I had to roll the whole thing to get the thread in positon to keep repeating the 1st half. Managed 3 1st halves, but now the thread is wrapped around the core several times from that, and how to coax 2nd halves from that tangled mess? I'm thinking it can't be done. Anybody know how?
