Sorry for this newbie question ! No matter how much I do them, my clovers are rubbish. Very gappy. And the joining picots are always visible. I've tried tatting looser, tighter, tried a trick I saw on youtube where you do the 2nd half of a ds to pull it in tighter, which helps a bit, but doesn't work 100%.
It's such a simple thing but I can't seem to get them to look neat. Any tips would be much appreciated !
