As promised, here is my first try at a traditional doily pattern. In my last post, you saw several versions, using different yarns, needle sizes and starts. Please refer to that post for final dimensions. The pattern is in three pages, with page one being the cheese-cake shot of my finished doily relaxing after a firm blocking. I didn't use starch, but if I wanted the doily to really hold her shape well, I would...actually, I wanted to use starch but I didn't have any in the house.
The second page of the pattern lists the basic materials. Again, I refer you to my previous post with the Little Flower label, where you can see how the doily looks with several different yarn and needle choices. Use whatever you have available. The instructions follow, and are very basic, with most of the real "meat" being in the chart. The chart is my version of a typical doily chart. There are no fancy needle-moves. If you use the key from page two I trust it will all make good sense! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. I will be back in a few days with an update on what is on my needles, and maybe I will get around to showing you all my new fiber goodies...let's see what I have time for.
I remind everyone that I am unable to post PDF files on my blog. I can only post JPG files. Click on each picture and either print it out or save it. The first and third pages are in landscape and the second page is in portrait, so print accordingly. Knit on!
