Nice work. My only suggestion would be to double up on those rings joining the sections of barrel weave (or rhinos snorting draino, depending on which tutorial you look at). I find it's always best to avoid single ring joining whenever possible for structural reasons.

Yeah, I have to agree with you, there. Ideas to keep in mind for future iterations. I've already come up with about fifteen things I want to do differently when I can afford more supplies (lengthening the rainbow shaggy loops drape as well as the feathered drape, trading 20g for 18g in a few places like the center unit).

At the time I was having enough issues getting the single rings through the joins on the barrel weave (as I was going off of it) and I was being cautious yet adventurous at the same time. :)

Thanks for the tip, though, I always appreciate those from other maillers. :) It's how I improve!
