I'm wild about the Wild Rose Scallop Doily!

I used DMC Cebelia sz 30 in light pink and light green with US sz 10 hook and ended up 11 inches in diameter.

My finish (the pink edging) is not 'exactly' what the pattern called for...but I just could not 'get it'.  I did what I could figure out.

This pattern was one of the choices on the DOM.  It was not picked but I couldn't help myself and just HAD to crochet it.

I don't know what the original pattern looked like, but I really like your finishing touch. The colors really go well together, and this is a stunning piece!

Very pretty Maria. I remember my mother doing something like this when I was a child, and in very similar colours. I daresay she still has it and uses it. Your stitches are so very neat and even.
