The pattern calls for the JC to be "back to back". I decided to tent them slightly, and before that, just at the tie in point, I ribboned the stem over the edge of my scissors to create a bit of a bend in them.
I was trying back to back at first but havin too much trouble keeping them down.
Not sure that's entirely accurate but it works.
