The tatted Daffodil Doily.... blocked and on its way to my mom.

As I tatted around, on Round 4, I realized I would end up with an additional ring.  I read the pattern, again....looked at the sketch...and there it was!  On Round 3, one of the chains should have one less picot.  [You can see the extra ring bottom right]
I challenged myself by making split chains and split rings.  It was invigorating!
This is a lovely doily and I'll be making it again. 

Oh, shoot!  I forgot to measure how wide it blocked out to be!  Another excuse to call my mom.  ;^)


  1. That is so beautiful! I tried to teach myself to tat several years ago, from books and the internet. I didn't get very far, and put it away. Your work has inspired me to pull my supplies out and give it another go!

  2. I love that little doily! I discovered the same thing the first time I tatted it. I emailed the company and the designer, and I was sent a corrected pattern, but the corrected pattern was wrong! I left out one picot on round 3 and all was good. It works up quickly too. Beautifully done!

  3. Oh wow! that's beautiful!


    One of these days, I'll photo my yarn collection!!! Oiy!

  4. Just beautiful. And I still can't see the extra! And I like that I can't see the extra! I'm too busy oohing and aaahing!

  5. Oh this is just lovely! Beautiful like all the stuff you make :)

  6. That's a very pretty doily!


I am SO looking forward to reading your comment!!! Thank you for leaving one!
