Well this weekend I worked on the Black Edging for my top and the little pattern fixes did the trick! Everyone seemed to agree that joining the top 2 picots and instead of the bottom 2 would work. Diane suggested adding a few stitches and a picot to the bottom chain as well, so I added only 2 stitches to the chain and put in a picot to the center area to make 3 picots instead of 2. I was so happy to see it curving in the correct direction! Thank you everyone for all the encouragement!
