Just out of curiosity I have a request.
I wonder how that same pattern would look if you tied in the rib at the bend and the body material at the thorax, wrapped the body toward the bend, secured it with the rib and wound the rib toward the thorax? The 'pitch' would be different and the angle of the rib would be reversed. I just have a feeling that the result would be 'nicer'. Would you mind trying that and posting the result?
Cheers & Thanks for your patience.
