As this is doily number 4, this time I used a thinner thread (size 10) and a smaller crochet hook (size C). The finished size is 20 inches. It is bigger than I had wanted for the center of my dresser but I am still learning. If I had used the pattern’s recommend size 20 thread and hook, it would be 15 inches. I decided that I will just put it at the edge of the dresser then drape the excess off behind the dresser. My lamp, two cedar boxes and a couple of bottles of perfume will look nice on it.
The pattern wasn’t really hard to follow. There were a couple of rows that reading the directions didn’t make sense. So I would start out the row and then compare what I was doing to the picture included in the book. The picture was detailed enough that you could see what the pattern was.
This is it not starched.
