Jan's Doily

The final version of the doily has been tatted and the pattern can now be found in my Etsy shop. Click here to go directly to the listing.

Below is a photo of the doily, tatted in Lizbeth size 40 thread, White, Seagreen Light, and Turquoise Dark. It's next to the prototype of the doily, tatted in white:


I decided to name this pattern "Jan's Doily" because I was inspired by several of Jan Stawasz's doily designs. I really like the way he frames a central shape with a border of simple rings and chains.

The doily measures 11.75 inches wide when tatted in size 20 thread and 9.6 inches wide in size 40 thread. It's appropriate for a large vase or similar item:


Here is a closer photo of the prototype. It has a few minor irregularities because I was trying to come up with a good stitch count as I went along:


The colorized version was tatted afterwards, to test out my instructions and to make sure that everything lays flat:
