This if a Doily owned by my mother. I am intending to reconstruct the pattern, when I find some variegated crochet cotton in purple and a deep golden yellow, or I dye some cotton myself.
It is done in a very fine weight crochet cotton.
This is a detail shot of the Pansy. I'm including close detail shots for those people who are interested in crocheting from the pictures.
Here is a cross section of the doily, large enough to be able to see the stitches for reading the pattern.
The doily is lightly starched with a spay starch and pinned to a cardboard to stretch it.
Have Suggestions orany improvements? I would love to hear from you.
