I am having trouble. My medallion is ruffling. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Hi, +Emily Bushnell, I'm sorry you're having trouble with the motifs. There are only two suggestions I can make to resolve the ruffling of the medallions.
1. Try chaining more loosely in between the triangles that go around the medallion. 2. Add one or two more chains to the ones called for, to accommodate for the fact that you crochet tighter than the designer. Hope this helps!
