My tatting collar

I have made this collar using thread size 20, and one shuttle in a stage of working , and two shuttles in the last round edge.
It a charted pattern. Still love charted pattern in any craft including tatting. I have practised some new things in this pattern like the flower motif , and that circular chain. I have used Sewmate shuttle , and love it because it holds good amount of thread , and it is tight to give me a good gauge.
The first edge of this collar which is around the neck was really trick for me because there is thread between two rings, and I wanted to keep the same length of that thread, so I have mark 4mm on my index finger , and use it as a ruler to measure the  length between rings. lol any way it is what came to my mind to solve my problem.
Still need to perfect my picots, and my stitches; I still don't like my stitches, and picots. I think tatting needs more good , and even stitches , and picots. I need to learn how to get the same length of picots without "picot gouge." I cannot use it for every single picot.

 A stage of this collar;
Close look;
Happy tatting for all of you.
