Here is my new square motif tatted with old technique of Dot. Dot is a vintage term used for tiny rings of up to 4 or 5 stitches only. Muskaan too has explained Dots in her blog. I have used rings of only two double stitches.
The motif is made up of two rounds, tatted continuously.
The first round is large ring with long and regular picots. It can be tatted as a SCMR, too. If using 2 colours, one can tat this ring separately.
The second round has tiny ‘dots’ in between four arms with floating rings. The dots joined to the center, are separated by very short chains.
Muskaan has test tatted this motif and found it ruffled while working. She had to block the piece to lay it flat. In my opinion, if the motif is tatted with moderate tension of stitches, it doesn’t ruffle much. As I too had to press it before clicking the pics. I would recommend blocking the tatted motif for best results.

Some close up pics given below, which I had taken while working on this motif.
The motif looks beautiful in variegated thread. Variation tatted in single color.
