Size comparisons for Beaded Flowers and Starflowers in size 40

These top ones are the Beaded Flowers and they are the size of a 50 cent piece.
 And these below are the Beaded Starflowers and they are the size of a quarter.
And here are all of them together for an idea of size.  :)
Hope this is helpful.  
If you follow the written directions on the pattern, it's missing a picot and an 8 at the end of the ring, but there is a diagram, and as I said before, I changed the long outer chains to 8ds instead of 12 to make it look more like Corina's picture.
If you see the Beaded Flower in the top right of the top picture you will see what it looks like with the 12ds.  And all the starflowers are the same pattern just cut the stitch counts in half and only do five rings(oh, and only put 3 beads on top points of rings).
Hope this helps!!!  Pattern here:  

Have a great tatting day!!!  :)

Very helpful - not only the pictures, but telling us WHERE to find the patterns. Your tatted/beaded flowers are lovely.

Thanks for showing the tatted pieces next to the coins. It makes it much easier for me to understand the size. Your tatting is beautiful as usual!

Gorgeous flowers, not quite sure of the size as I don't know the American currency size, but it's not important they are gorgeous

Yes, I changed the count of the long chains too. I thought my tension must be different. It didn't look right with 12.
