No.25/25 - A Square Doily

This is it! My final entry for the 25-motif challenge, as promised a doily.

BTW, when someone say doily, I always have the image of something round or oval. Are square shapes also called doilies?

This one is different from the usual ones - it is made in rows rather than rounds.

I was playing with some ideas on this last one and a thought struck my mind. If we can have crochet blocks starting with rows as well as rounds, I'm sure we can have the same with tatting. So here it is - something that begins at the edge and worked upwards to form a square.

The first row are all split rings, and I also make use of split rings to move to the next row. When all the rows are done, I made one last round of rings and chains to soften the effects of the edges.

Hmmm ....... have to think of what to do next ........


  1. An idea that sees fruition. How grand is that?! Congratulations! You've completed the challenge!

  2. What's next? Publishing of course! Jon you have so many wonderufl designs from the challenge all you have to do is get them on paper. You have the lace, the pictures, the designs, just write them out, get them printed and let people know they are available. You will be amazed at how many people would love to own a copy of your designs.

  3. Congratulations! What an inspirational journey you've had in the making! I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I've enjoyed watching.
