SCMR Butterfly

I recently purchased The Shuttle Brothers "Tatting the Self-Closing Mock Ring for GR-8 Design". It is a wonderful book with lots of good illustrations and well written. I have been learning how to do the SCMR for the past couple of months using Jane Eborall's excellent instructions. I was so happy with my butterfly until I started to close the ring and the thread broke. I did get the ring close but there is a bump of threads in the beginning of the close. Another motif for the pile! I was using Lizbeth #110 Desert Bloom size 20. Perhaps I am tatting to tight??
