The bottom lace of the first tail is worked, then stitches are picked up along the straight edge. The tail and side laces are worked together and left on a thread. The second tail is worked the same way, then the centre and side laces are worked onto these stitches directly. The two pieces are then grafted together.
Next row: Work the next row of the Left Lace Chart, SM, k to M, SM, work Row 1 of the Right Lace Chart.
Continue working the Left and Right Lace Charts as set; at the same time, work the sts between the markers as follows:
Work Rows 1–22 of Tail Chart 1 twice, then Rows 1–22 of Tail Chart 2 once, then Rows 1–22 of Tail Chart 1 once, then Rows 1–31 of Tail Chart 3 once. Break yarn, leaving a 150cm (60in) tail for grafting, and leave stitches on a stitch holder.
Work as for the first tail, but do not break yarn nor place stitches on a holder. Continuing across these stitches, continue working the Left and Right Lace Charts, working Rows 1–64 of the Centre Chart between the markers, three times in total. Break yarn and graft the two sections together.
