Merriment Doily

I chose the name Merriment because it is an easy and fun pattern to make.

I tatted the model in size 30 thread and the finished size is 11.5cm across or 4.5 inches.
At first glance, it appears that two shuttles are required. But, you can also do it with shuttle and ball. I wrote something about this in a much earlier post, here.

I started on another piece of this doily in two shades, solid and variegated, of size #40 thread. The finished size is 10cm across or 4 inches.
Thread used are Lizbeth #40, 623 solid and 127 variegated

The pattern


Begin with ring of R(4-2-2-4), reverse work (RW)
Chain, C(3-3-3-3), RW.
(*)R(4+[to past picot of pr ring]2-2-4), RW and C(3-2-2-3) FOUR times

R(4+[to last picot of pr ring]2-2-4), RW.
C(3-3-3-3), RW.
R(4+[to last picot pr ring]2-2+[to first picot of first ring]4). Do not reverse (DNR)
This completes a set of 8-rings cluster.
Switch shuttle (SS) and make chain C(4-6), DNR
SS, make a cloverleaf of R(6-3-3), R(3+[to last picot pr ring]2-1-1-2-3), and R(3+[to last picot pr
ring]3-6). DNR
(§)SS, C(6-4), DNR.
(**)(4-2-2-4), reverse work (RW)
Chain, C(3-3+[to middle picot of 3rd chain previously]3-3), RW.
Repeat step (*)
R(4+[to last picot of pr ring]2-2-4), RW.
C(3-3-3-3), RW.
R(4+[to last picot pr ring]2-2+[to first picot of first ring]4). Do not reverse (DNR)
Switch shuttle (SS) and make chain C(4-6), DNR
SS, R(6+[to picot of 3rd ring of pr cloverleaf] 3-3), R(3+[to last picot pr ring]2-1-1-2-3), R(3+[to
last picot pr ring]3-6). DNR
SS, C(6-4), DNR.
Repeat from (**) to make up 8 sets of the 8-rings cluster.
If working with shuttle and ball,
At step (§), make the chain C(4-6) with un-flipped double stitches.
Then RW, and make the cloverleaf.
RW again and make the chain C(6-4) with un-flipped double stitches.

  2. Such a sweet pattern, Jon.

    I have it on my LOOOONG list of 'to-tats',and hope to get to it very soon as it looks like a very soothing pattern.

    I have the perfect #60 thread for it and I would tat it on two shuttles as I always feel unbalanced with only one!
