Second Attempt at Mystery Doily

I did not like the way my first doily was turning out.  Too much rippling.  So I decided to start again.  I switch to a size 20 Lizbeth thread in Scottish Thistle.  It is laying alot better.  Some rippling with row 1, but a little pressing will take care of that.  Row two is working out great so far.  I am using the 4-2-4-2-4 chain count.  I may decide to start another but just do row 1 with a chain count of 3-2-3-2-3.  I am finding I am pushing my chain stitches very tight together.  Maybe eliminating the extra stitches will help eliminate the chain tightness and any rippling that may occur?

I modified the colors in the photo in order to see the colors better.  They are on the light side
